The African Science Technology and Innovation Indicators (ASTII) Initiative is a programme within the African Science and Technology Consolidated Plan of Action (CPA). The CPA was adopted in 2005 by the African Ministerial Council on Science and Technology (AMCOST) as a framework for science, technology and innovation (STI) to respond to the socio-economic challenges facing the continent.
The first phase of the ASTII programme ran from 2007 to 2010 and was designed to serve as a learning mechanism, giving nineteen African Union member States the means and opportunity to engage in mutual learning and sharing to improve the measurement of science, technology and innovation. The second phase of ASTII will commence in 2011 and will be open to wider participation from the remaining African Union member states.
The AU Commissioner for Human Resources Science and Technology and the Chief Executive Officer of the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency will launch the African Innovation Outlook Series and officially launch the second phase of the ASTII project during the workshop.
