Abidjan, April 15-17, 2013 - 

The Republic of Cote d’Ivoire believes that investing in science, technology and innovation (STI) will accelerate the implementation of its 2020 strategic development plan and enable the nation to compete in the knowledge economy.

While the country is blessed with abound natural resources, its main strategic asset remains its dynamic population. The government strategic approach entails creating a critical mass of citizens with the necessary STI skills and capabilities to transform these natural endowments into consumable wealth.

It is in this context and on the request of the host that the Ministry in charge of Higher education and scientific research, the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) and the African Observatory for Science Technology and Innovation (AOSTI) will jointly organised a capacity building workshop on various aspects of STI. Sub-themes at the workshop include the development and management of STI Indicators, the measurement of scientific and technology productivity, measurement of innovation activities and element of policy review.

Since STI underpin all the economic activities, participants will include government representatives especially from the higher education sector and ministry in charge of STI, Business enterprise sector, national office of statistics, parliament, civil society, NGOs, etc.
