Innovation, number of researchers or scientific publications ... Which African countries win the prize in science and technology? Answer, in an infographic.

What is the level reached by the different countries in the field of science, technology and innovation (STI), and especially with regard to the support and promotion of these STIs by the public authorities?

This map is based on the Global Innovation Index (Cornell University / Insead / World Intellectual Property Organization) and the Africa Capacity Index (African Capacity Building Foundation). The level of the countries is therefore not only according to their scientific performance, hence the "low" level attributed to certain nations that shine in some disciplines, for example Algeria. But the champions (South Africa, Rwanda, Morocco ...) are there.
