Support chemistry in Higher Education by running courses and providing training to allow scientists to make better use of resources such as the RSC archive; and provide some extra digitisation of other materials to African scientists.
Promoting intra Africa scientific networking and conferencing on the key science issues facing the continent with a view to supporting the development of sustainable science programmes and expertise.
Establish centres of excellence for the chemical sciences to support economic & human development.
