The Research Management Programme in Africa (ReMPro Africa) Global Stakeholders Workshop will take place in Accra, Ghana, on 20-22 May 2019. It is the second in a series of meetings organised by The African Academy of Sciences (The AAS) to draft a global research management standard. Research management professionals, researchers, institutional leaders and funders from across the world will deliberate on the scope, depth and breadth of a global research management standard at the workshop. The AAS created the Research Management Programme in Africa (ReMPro Africa) to strengthen institutional research management functions and therefore maximise researchers time spent on research and innovation.
