SPARC Africa Open Access Symposium

December 2, 2019 – December 6, 2019 all-day
Cape Town
South Africa

“Open Access and Social Justice Driving African Development.”

The expected overall outcome is the development of a cohort of attendees who will take back to their respective institutions and countries the significance of open access to help move Africa from the periphery of the world’s knowledge production to the epicentre. The attendees will take back knowledge of open access and serve as advocates of open access, but more importantly, they will take back skills to implement learnings achieved at the symposium.
