ASLP - African Science Leadership Program

The African Science Leadership Program is aimed at young scientists in Africa who want to take on a leadership role in terms of shaping science and research, both at their own universities and across institutions and national borders. Alongside seminars on the development of management, communication, and leadership skills, this twelve-month program also covers the implementation of individual projects designed to bring about improvement in scientific management. Participants are supported by mentors for the entire year. The leadership program aims to not only improve the qualifications of the individual participants but also to facilitate the development of a pan-African network of leaders. The idea is that this network will help Africa become a strong player in the international research community.

The program is organized by the University of Pretoria in conjunction with the Global Young Academy and various international partners. It is supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
