The African University Network on FAIR Open Science has three major programmes:
- The Digital Innovation and Skills Hub (DISH) provides opportunities for all students, including those that dropped out, to learn skills, discover talents and contribute.
- The Virus Outbreak Data Network Africa (VODAN-Africa) presents a Pan-African Approach to make data locally owned and yet interoperable. This has incredible potential in the science sector, health, climate, and industry. VODAN-Africa presented the first operational cross-border collaboration of health data stored locally and analysed across nine countries. It is ahead of global developments and showing the way for the digital future.
- The Globalisation, Accessibility, Innovation and Care (GAIC) Research programme serves as an example of science collaboration across the continent and with other geographies. The programme trains specialised academics, with interdisciplinary backgrounds through its dedicated PhD programme.
The Pan African University Network on FAIR Open Science embraces global standards on FAIR Open Science and contributes to it. As a Pan African network, it works with Pan African organisations to promote African science and collaboration with international partners in the European Union and elsewhere.
