Strengths and Weaknesses of African countries and regions

AOSTI published this addendum to “The state of Scientific Production in the African Union” in order to give details of the strengths and
weaknesses of countries and regions.

 

In this supplement, graphical techniques known as positional analysis are used to facilitate the interpretation of the concepts of the relative strengths and weaknesses of African countries and Regional Economic Communities in scientific fields.

The addendum examines the scientific fields of specialization of the AU with positional analyses by field of science.

In this addendum, AOSTI uses graphical techniques to facilitate the interpretation of the concepts of the “relative strengths and weaknesses of African countries/regions in scientific fields” as introduced in the: “Assessment of Scientific Production in the African Union, 2005– 2010”. Each of the AU member states can then interpret this purpose of monitoring and evaluation of its national scientific production and adjust relevant policy processes.

The definitions of the various concepts used in this addendum and the details on the grouping of scientific fields are found in the main document.
