Abstract

Deploying NREN infrastructures is considered a crucial step for fostering Science and Technology in Africa as it will allow to support advanced services for sharing science. For managing science components and players, the Current Research Information System (CRIS) has been proposed and adopted internationally. Understanding these concepts and applying them in the science ecosystem of developing countries will allow to foster science management in these countries, saving years of progress.
