IFYAR 2020 Background

There cannot be a complete emergent Africa without development focused on scientific research and the full participation of the youths. Because of many technological and socioeconomic obstacles, Africa cannot fully develop in the research sector. Thus the choice of organizing the International Fair for Young African Researcher by the SCH for a better participation of the youth in the development process.

IFYAR is so intended to be held every 2 years. The first edition will be organized within the eco-tourism site Ecopark in Yaoundé, the political capital of Cameroon. Around 2,500 visitors are expected to attend this fair, which will bring together scientists, juniors and seniors, companies and institutions of a scientific nature, representatives of government structures and civil society. The objective being to set up a collaboration platform between all these entities, in order to bring out innovative and viable solutions for the economy, health and industry



Food and nutritional sciences include the fields of food science and technology, particularly the production, processing, refining, preservation, storage and distribution of food.


Health Law is a set of legal rules specific to a health system with the aim of legislating the action of direct and intermediate actors in the supply chain of health services. However, the right to health is one of the priorities of the millennium, a permanent fight led by WHO as well as its ramifications which are addressed to vulnerable populations. The various evaluation factors sum up this Right in: access to quality care, acceptable level of health care and the affordable cost of quality care. Thus, will be interested in the plenaries and workshops dedicated to this thematic, young students, researchers and professionals sharing a particular interest for Biopiracy and the traditional African pharmacopoeia, the premises of universal health coverage, the legal framework and the industrialization of traditional African medicine and pharmacopoeia as well as the challenges linked to the industrialization and marketing of products derived from traditional African pharmacopoeia.


This axis concerns students, researchers and other professionals involved in research in the exact sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, etc.), renewable energy, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and other related disciplines or curricula.


Health Sciences are known as all studies or practices of the various medical and paramedical specialties aiming the Health of individuals, more precisely to allow knowledge on new discoveries and new treatments, to understand and relieve all kinds of illnesses as well as human suffering.

Health sciences are intended for students, researchers and health professionals (medical and paramedical) with a particular interest in operational research, quality control, good clinical laboratory practices, the development of medical devices / innovations and pharmaceutical products as well as infectious and non-communicable diseases.


Turned towards the study of humans and societies, social sciences are more specifically interested in the activities, behaviors, thinking and intentions, lifestyles, evolution of the human being in past or present, whether alone or in a group.

IFAR will therefore be the suitable platform for presentations, conferences and workshops focused on students, researchers, professionals and actors of the society with a particular interest in crisis management, digital and digitalization of research processes, behavior change in relation to the risks and the vectors of development in the society.
