Who We Are
ARIST is a global team of African academic and industrial scientists in the Diaspora who have formed a collaborative partnership with Africans at home and international friends of Africa, to foster the transformation of Africa through education, research, innovation, entreprenuership, and community outreach.
We work with existing African universities with MS/Ph.D. programs, industry and government agencies to implement research, education and training of African scientists and engineers.
Mission and Vision
To strengthen African science and technology education at existing universities and institutions of higher education through programs that would promote world class education, research, entrepreneurship, and innovation. The aim is to help provide a platform for the development of a critical mass of well trained Africans who could have the needed transformative impacts, with the development of knowledge-based industries that would add value to Africa's natural and human resources, industry, services, and economic activities.
