SIST (Systeme d’Information Scientifique et Technique) is a cooperative project of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It aims to open up African research and to apply science to African sustainable development. SIST has three components: the establishment of an information system in each country project partner; the creation of networks of expertise on priority issues; and training and transfer of expertise. It is intended primarily for researchers, laboratories, teachers and universities and encourages access to information produced in Africa and other continents, the dissemination of their research, and the formation of scientific teams on common themes.
