Welcome to the African Open Science Platform

The Africa Open Science Platform (AOSP) was established in 2017 with an aim to position African scientists at the cutting edge of data intensive science by stimulating interactivity and creating opportunity through the development of efficiencies of scale, building critical mass through shared capacities, and amplifying impact through a commonality of purpose and voice. Since 2020, the AOSP Project Office is hosted by the National Research Foundation, and is supported by the South African Department of Science and Innovation, the International Science Council, CODATA, the Academy of Science of South Africa, Bibliotheca Alexandria and other prominent regional networks.

The Advisory Council

The AOSP is overseen by an Interim Advisory Council comprising of senior members from South Africa, Egypt, Kenya and Sierra Leone, together with representatives of the ISC and CODATA, and supported by a Technical Advisory Board.
