National Coordinators

Each National Chapter Coordinator provides intellectual and administrative leadership for ATPS activities in his/her country. The Secretariat liaises with national chapters to raise funds for carrying various STI capacity building activates at the country levels. The national chapters liaises with relevant STI Ministries, Knowledge Institutions and Private Sector Actors in their country to identify and prioritize STI capacity building needs at the country level. These identified needs inform the overall regional strategic plan of the ATPS for each strategic phase, usually covering a four year period. Each chapter provides national strategic plans outlining priority areas of STI research, training and capacity building, and science communication in their various countries each year. These identified short term priority areas guide the research, training/capacity building and science communication implementation activities of ATPS at both regional and country levels. The chapters are encouraged to register as None Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in their country to increase visibility and impact. They are also encouraged to fundraise to support national activities from national organizations, national governments, etc. Current membership of the ATPS covers 27 countries in Africa and 2 chapters in the diaspora
