IFYAR

Overview

Africa cannot achieve its full emergence without development focused on Scientific Research, and without the full involvement of its youth. The latter cannot yet fully flourish in the research sector due to numerous technological, economic and societal barriers. For this reason, the Scientific Center for Health (SCH) has chosen to organise the International Fair for Young African Researchers with a view to overcoming these obstacles to the involvement of young people in the development process.

IFYAR is a biannual event whose purpose is to establish a platform for exchange and communication involving key actors namely young researchers, firms and scientific companies, civil society and policy-makers. This platform will strengthen the resources, visibility and contribution of young African researchers in scientific research, with the aim of bringing out innovative and viable solutions for the economy, health and industry.

IFYAR’s specific objectives are in line with the Sustainable development goals (SDGs) in health and well-being, quality of education, decent work, economic and industrial growth, as well as in terms of technological innovation.

IFYAR therefore represents the ideal platform to:

  • Promote and enhance the value of your research work;
  • Create a climate favorable to the funding and support of your research projects;
  • Train you in scientific research and all its components (fundraising, project writing, ethics, etc.);
  • Develop your entrepreneurial spirit and open you up to the professional world;
  • Meet companies and institutions working in research;
  • Build an excellent network of young African researchers;
  • Benefit from the experience of experienced researchers of international reputation.
OUR 05 AXES

AGRI-FOOD SCIENCES

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

RIGHT TO HEALTH

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.

MATERIAL SCIENCES AND ICT

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

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.

SOCIAL SCIENCES

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.
