About the U.S.-Africa Initiative in Electronic Structure

American Physical Society

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.

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

USAfri is partnering with several groups focused on physics in Africa:

For 2021-2022, USAfri is developing two workshops, one where participants meet one another virtually to identify common interests, and one a year later in the U.S. followed by individual visits of Africans to research groups and user facilities in the U.S. to further develop potential working relationships.
