About 1,500 people attended the Next Einstein Forum (NEF) in Kigali in March 2018, the largest science conference in Africa to date - including astrophysicists from Ethiopia, biologists from Zimbabwe, and nanotech researchers from Niger, while Nobel prize winners, publishers of leading scientific journals, and presidents of global research institutions mixed with the crowd.
