Twenty-two outstanding scientists from all major regions within Africa will participate in the third round of the Africa Science Leadership Programme (ASLP). The scientists represent basic and applied sciences, and span a wide variety of disciplines including the social sciences and humanities.

The program on ‘Leading a new paradigm for African Science’ starts on 22 March with a week-long workshop. The fellows will dive deeply into topics such as collective leadership and science communication. Leaders in academia and research, science communication, and leadership theory and practice will join the fellows for interactive sessions. The workshop will be followed by a year of application and mentorship, with a follow-up workshop planned for March 2018.

The 2017 ASLP fellows will meet with the 2016 cohort of fellows on 27 March, when the 2016 fellows start their second workshop.
