History of Open AIR

The Open African Innovation Research network (Open AIR) has a brief but rich history. It is the successor to several different research projects, and is building on the results.

Right now, our activities position our Africa-focused research in the middle of a growing global network, strengthening cross-regional connections amongst Africa and the rest of the world – especially in Francophone African countries.
