dc.description.abstract The paper argues that Science Granting Councils (SGC) in their intermediary role between governments and the science community, can act as a collective to achieve efficiencies of scale, stimulating virtual critical masses and intra-African collaboration while creating an African space for open science. It details some tools and processes necessary for supporting open science, as well as the rationale for sharing scientific data, which permits re-use by others as open data. It describes open science platforms or “commons” to provide support to the research process, from information technology infrastructure to high-level analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) procedures. en
