Strengthening Africa’s Science Granting Councils as champions of indicators in public policy making

​Supporting Councils to design and monitor research programmes and to formulate and implement policies based on the use of robust science, technology and innovation indicators. 
​The objectives are:
  • To strengthen the ability of SGCs to develop, collect, analyse and disseminate indicators for STI policy and associated instruments
  • To strengthen the capacity of SGCs to develop and use indicators for assessing STI policy relevance and advocating for increased research and development investments
  • To strengthen the capacity of SGCs to design and monitor research programmes by developing a guide to best practices
  • To strengthen the ability of SGCs to champion the appreciation and use of STI indicators in policy decisions
