We seek to increase the influence of multidisciplinary research in Africa through broad-based technology and science  driven education that leverages on several streams of learning and research as conduits for knowledge dissemination and skills production. The society also offers a platform for academic and research mentoring, incubation and allied initiatives among professionals by using collaboration and mentoring as viable tools for promoting informed policy on national and international multi-throng research and development issues. Our membership cuts across educators, social scientists academics, scientists, artists, scholars in the humanities, arts, behavioural sciences and other professionals. Organizations and individuals who share a common interest in enabling Africa to participate as knowledge producers and not just knowledge consumers in today’s information age are welcome to join the society.
