The structural organization consists of a SteeringCommittee that is advised by an InternationalAdvisoryCommittee (IAC), GroupConveners and sub-group conveners. The SteeringCommittee (STC) is made of professional scientists that are still active in their fields and well-connected to the international community. Members of the STC are Africans (from Africa and the diaspora)—they are the founding members of this historic and inaugural African Strategy. The STC will manage and coordinate the activities, and work and liaise with the InternationalAdvisoryCommittee until the final report that will serve as the African Strategy.
The IAC will advise the Steering Committee. Members of the IAC are from the worldwide community. The role of the IAC is to offer advice, suggestions and perspectives from their own strategies to inform the STC who will be responsible to guide the working groups toward a successful African Strategy.
The GroupConveners are experts in their domains, selected with particular attention to gender balance, geographical balance, and inclusion of non-African physicists. The group conveners are responsible to coordinate the activities within their groups, define relevant sub-groups in consultation with the STC, assist the subgroups, engage the other groups on common topics or issues, and work on the report of their group activity.
