This report documents the discussions and recommendations that came from a workshop with the science academies and Africa's RECs, which took place in November 2016, in South Africa.

The report indicates that "there are various approaches in involving science academies and Africa’s RECs in EUAfrica
policy dialogues, while science academies can support policy-makers in championing STI policies and serving as science advisories, policy-makers must strengthen their ties with science academies and the private sector in order to collectively and effectively address societal challenges."
