Africa Scientific Renaissance Day

The Africa Scientific Renaissance Day is set aside by the Organisation of Africa Unity (OAU) now the African Union (AU), to remind all African governments and people about the critical role that Science and Technology play in national development.

At the 46th ordinary session of the OAU, now the AU held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 1987, a resolution was passed for all member-states to celebrate 30th June, every year as the Day of Scienti c Renaissance of Africa.

The event is in remembrance of the continent’s great contribution to the rise and development of modern Science and Technology.
