ATPS Malawi inaugural Annual Meeting
The African Technology Policy Studies (ATPS), Malawi Chapter held a one day meeting on December 9, 2011. The gathering primarily provided an opportunity for like-minded institutions and registered and potential members to be inducted to the aspirations of ATPS and encourage them to employ ATPS in realizing their own aspirations for a better world by being innovation and knowledge brokers without and within Malawi.
The tenets of the meeting recognized that the ATPS Malawi Chapter is committed to a course of development which transcends narrowly-defined limits of a single organization. Thus, the Chapter seeks to nurture a network of professionals equipped with knowledge and skills that are needed to make the transition towards more sustainable socio-economic development.
The meeting saw the chapter coordinator, Prof Mloza-Banda; give a history of the Malawi Chapter, its activities and its contribution to the larger ATPS Network. Mr. Tennyson Magombo, the chairperson of the ATPS Youth program, AYFST also highlighted the youth’s participation in the Malawi Chapter and ATPS as a whole while Dr. J. H. A. Maida presented to the participants the African Manifesto for Science, Technology and Innovation, a product of the SETDEV process that involved ATPS and other global partners.
