On the request of the Commission of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the African Observatory of Science, Technology and Innovation (AOSTI) will serve as resource institution to train Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Experts in the areas of measuring STI activities in the ECOWAS region. The first training session has been scheduled 4-6 June 2013 and will be held in Niamey, Niger, with the participation of all the 15 member states of the ECOWAS region. The training workshop will be an opportunity for participants to be acquainted with various STI concepts and relevant measurement instruments. ECOWAS’s STI policy is embodied in the ECOPOST strategy which was adopted by the Head of State and Government in June 2012 in Yamoussoukro.

Backstopping African countries to manage and use STI indicators for policy purpose is mission critical for AOSTI.
