DS-I Africa Virtual Symposium Platform

Overview

Welcome

In coordination with the launch of the NIH Common Fund’s Harnessing Data Science for Health Discovery and Innovation in Africa (DS-I Africa) program, NIH hosted an online-only, Virtual Symposium Platform in Summer 2020 that was free, open to anyone interested, and interactive. 

The goals of the Platform were to:

  1. Publicize the NIH funding opportunities and communicate key priorities of the DS-I Africa program.
  2. Engage participants in robust scientific sessions that examine the state of data science across Africa.
  3. Encourage networking across disciplines, sectors, and geographies.
