An introduction to PASET

PASET is an initiative owned and led by African countries formed in 2013 in response to the critical need to strengthen the scientific and technological capacity of Sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries, to advance their development and economic transformation. To achieve this goal, PASET espouses collaboration between African governments, the private sector, development partners, and new partner countries from Asia (including Korea) and Latin America.
