Join Us

AREN seeks to build a continent-wide open science community that fosters collaboration. Our community participation model creates room for individuals across Africa to directly contribute to our activities regardless of their specialization or expertise, get support from community members and collaborate on projects that promote responsible research practices.

This is part of efforts to ensure we have a vibrant open science community which promotes full participation by community members, allowing room for developing solutions that suit the local contexts.
