"The U.S.– Africa Initiative in Electronic Structure (USAfri) aims to create a platform for exchange between African and U.S. physicists with opportunities to have a major impact on research and education in Africa. Electronic Structure is a natural choice because it is an essential part of research with applications in many fields, and there is a network of capable researchers in Africa generated by sustained efforts over the past 10 years.

The U.S.-Africa Initiative in Electronic Structure is supported by of the Innovation Fund of the American Physical Society. https://usafricainitiative.org/
