16 - 18 October 2022
The ABIC Community Meeting is aimed at gathering Africa’s microscopists, biologists, data scientists, and science policy and community developers for a two-and-a half day event focused on empowering fundamental biology research in Africa.
This annual meeting provides a platform for the community to share experiences, challenges, and visions, strengthen community ties, and identify new avenues of action and advocacy. Each year important discussions and brainstorming sessions held during the Community Meeting are instrumental in defining the road ahead for ABIC. Other sessions focus on facilitating dialogue with funders, policymakers, and commercial partners.
Key sessions of our community meeting will be made available online in a hybrid meeting format.
