Endorsements and Support

The African Strategy is endorsed by the The African Physical Society (AfPS). Also, ASFAP has the support of CERN. Furthermore, the InternationalAdvisoryCommittee comprises leading experts worldwide, from major international institutes.

The ASFAP Founding Process is designed to be a transparent and democratic process, to be owned by Africans for Africa. It has to be initiated by someone, and as such, the SteeringCommittee initiated the process. Our pedigree derives from a long history of work in the area of Fundamental Physics and Applications, but particularly from more than a decade of work through the African School of Fundamental Physics and its applications, which has lead to a large community with a common vision for Africa, as well as all the appropriate networks for us to guide and nurture this process. The vision is that Africa should take its equal place as a co-leader in the global scientific process, along with all the social-economic benefits thereto. As we formed the structures of the ASAP, according to international best proactive, and adapted for Africa considering the emphasis on the spin-off benefits from Fundamental Physics, into many associated disciplines, which lead us to have a broad convener structure. As these structures are populated, they evolve to become increasingly inclusive and to exhibit transparency and democracy, as we reach out to the full community and involve them. At the maturity of this process, the leadership of the ASFAP will also be re-established through elections to reflect the wishes and industry of the institutions and the individuals of the African community who have become involved. We also see as African, all who seek to promote this vision for Africa. As such, this process is characterized by the African spirit of Ubuntu. We have every expectation it will grow into a healthy vibrant and robust Strategy.

We have engaged the African Academy of Sciences (AAS) for participation in—and support of—this African Strategy.

Through our CommunityEngagement, we expect to draw the broader participation of the African and international communities.
