Today, the Smithsonian opened its much-anticipated, three-year exhibit “Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World” at the National Museum of Natural Science with support from Johnson & Johnson Innovation, just as another Ebola outbreak is heating up in Democratic Republic of Congo. And earlier this week, we kicked off an exciting new collaboration with the British Science Museum and Royal Society at the Science Meets the Media event and celebrated science journalism at the Association of British Science Writers (ABSW) annual awards.
The Next Einstein Forum (NEF) is an initiative launched by the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in 2013, in partnership with Johnson & Johnson Innovation to showcase science in Africa and to give some of the most promising scientists from the African continent a voice. The 2018 meeting took place in Kigali, Rwanda. Attendees included leaders from the fields of science, policy and civil society, and also heads of states such as H.E. President Paul Kagame of Rwanda, and President Macky Sall of Senegal.
