Next Einstein Forum Young Ambassador Programme 2022-2024 for Young Africans

Next Einstein Forum Young Ambassador Programme

Applications are open for the new cohort of Next Einstein Forum Ambassadors Programme. The ideal candidates are young Africans who are champions of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), and Social Sciences in their respective countries.

The Next Einstein Forum (NEF) is a public engagement initiative of the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS). Launched in 2013, the NEF was born out of a recognition that there was no gathering on African soil where the very best actors had the opportunity to come together from their diverse communities of science, industry, civil society, and policy, from Africa and around the world, to leverage science for global development.
