Washington DC/London — Science took a back seat at the first US-Africa Leaders Summit last week (4-6 August), but high-level calls for increased science cooperation and a chance to speak to top officials have left some African policy experts optimistic about the future.

Although there were no major research-related announcements, a White House statement said the leaders were able to discuss how to “promote skills development, especially in science, technology, research and innovation”.

The summit generated US$37 billion in new investment, including in infrastructure, electricity, public health, and food security.
