To foster collaboration among university, industry and government across the African Union to advance education of supply chain management, achieve innovation through joint and sponsored research, provide a pipeline for talent, and support industrial projects for life sciences and healthcare. By leveraging the collective infrastructure, resources, and expertise of academia, industry and government, we will combat critical challenges, such as new drug development, workforce development and training, talent shortages, and supply chain disruptions. This collaboration will provide the BioPharma industry greater reach for translation of research into products, discovery of innovative approaches and techniques, talent development, and more.
