Igniting Conversations About Science
SFSA2019 positions itself between an academic / research conference (where research papers are presented) and a science engagement meeting (where science is made popular, often with a focus on the youth).
SFSA2019 is, therefore, a celebration of science, technology, and innovation where we ignite conversations about science on the middle ground between academics, policy, and popular science engagement.
Our participants are diverse, comprising scientists, students, public and private sector representatives as well as civil society constituents.
We offer an “enticing” programme comprising several parallel sessions, addressing a diverse range of science and science policy orientated themes.
Our event is international, reflected by the participation of speakers and attendees from a diverse range of countries, especially from Africa.
Our programme enables public input through a competitive call for proposals for the organisation of sessions.
