G8 leaders give indirect boost for science in Africa

SciDev.Net article:

"The leaders of the world's most industrialised nations (G8) have given their joint backing to the development of 'centres of excellence' within science and technology institutions in Africa.

"In a communique issued at end of their annual summit, this year in Gleneagles, Scotland, the G8 leaders also urged support for 'networks of excellence' linking institutions of higher education in Africa and in other countries, suggesting that these are needed to help develop 'skilled professionals for Africa's private and public sectors'."
