Annual Report 2017
Since its inception more than a decade ago, Open AIR has created capacity at four African hubs and evolved into one of Africa’s most unique and credible voices on IP and innovation issues. Open AIR’s evolution is a result of its studies across several economic sectors and areas of IP, which have continuously grown in breadth and depth. This, combined with ongoing training of network members, has resulted in significantly increased capacity among our researchers, including emerging African scholars who joined Open AIR as Research Fellows, as well as African policy and issue leaders, and African innovators, creators, and entrepreneurs.
