ARIN seeks to identify and leverage on key research talents to flexibly and innovatively contribute to Africa’s research transformation, policy analysis and capacity building.

ARIN, therefore provides a peer review platform where best research and impact practices from different African contexts, are shared, profiled, and leveraged to inform transformative policy action. Among the areas that ARIN has pioneered path-breaking research, are climate change, knowledge management, science technology, and innovation.

The network currently convenes research and policy platforms on climate action, drawing from the perspective of researchers on, adaptation, science, technology, and innovation status in Africa. Through the same approach, ARIN assesses opportunities for science-policy interface, through contextual projects on research commercialization, innovation, knowledge translation, and practice.
