The African Scientific, Research and Innovation Council (ASRIC) is organizing its Third Congress in partnership with Hassan II Académie des Sciences in Rabat, Morocco from the 23rd to the 26th of November 2020.

The Congress theme is “INFECTIOUS DISEASES AND PANDEMIC THREATS: WHAT AGENDA FOR AFRICA?” The Congress will focus on critical pandemic issues in Africa namely:

* the impact on the health system and promising solutions

** the impact on the economy and food security and alternative models for socioeconomic development to reduce poverty and hunger.

The inextricable linkages between these critical domains require a suitably integrated approach to ensuring population health protection, food security and socio-economic development. The elucidation and solution of these issues are envisaged as a concomitant to the Science Technology and Innovation Strategy for Africa and the 2063 Agenda’s aspirations of Africa we want.

The Congress Organizing Committee announces an Open Call for papers to be presented in the 3rd ASRIC Congress that would take place at the Hassan II Academy of Science and Technology, Rabat Morocco from 23rd to 26th of November 2020. Interested scientists are to submit an abstract of their original work in the Congress subthemes by 5th June 2020, to the Congress Organizing Committee for evaluation.
