dc.description.abstract This policy brief recommends that Science Granting Councils (SGC) through the SGC Initiative (SGCI) intensify the level, scope and ambition of collective action by developing an African open science area, and by seeking support and acquiescence of respective country governments in doing so. It provides background to an open science movement, which includes a digitized ‘commons’ or platform, through collective action by member states in sub-Sharan Africa. The African Technology Policy Studies Network (ATPS) provides platforms for regional and international research and knowledge sharing in order to build Africa’s capabilities in STI policy research, policymaking and implementation for sustainable development. en
