> The African Open Science Platform partnered with the organisers of the UbuntuNetConnect 2017 conference <https://events.ubuntunet.net/> and hosted a workshop – focusing on data infrastructure and capacity building – to 65 participants from all over Africa. From previous workshops presented, it was evident that Ethiopia faces the same needs in terms of open science policy, infrastructure to exchange and make data openly available, and capacity building.
> Prof. Afework Kassu (State Minister for Science and Technology, Ethiopia) welcomed all, and during his opening made the comment that openness should be embraced towards global peace. He further said that we need to lay the foundation for future citizens. We also need universities and industries to work together to promote further innovations. The important role of digital library systems to benefit students and staff was highlighted. A Science Cloud, and Science Cafes in the city for citizens to benefit from, are just two of the very successful initiatives. He ended by saying that Africa needs a continental strategy for Science and Technology towards addressing the objectives of the United Nations 2036 agenda <https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiNttPqqp3XAhXFBBoKHWEuAnoQFggsMAE&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.un.org%2Fen%2Fafrica%2Fosaa%2Fpdf%2Fau%2Fagenda2063.pdf&usg=AOvVaw22hlvdvvBHu1AIe0JXB-d8>.
