Institutional Support : African Technology Policy Studies - Tanzania (ATPS-Tanzania)

African Technology Policy Studies - Tanzania (ATPS-Tanzania) was registered as a national nongovernmental organization in 2001. Previous to that (from 1984), it operated as the Tanzanian Chapter of the Africa-wide ATPS. While resource flows to ATPS-Tanzania from ATPS headquarters in Nairobi were reliable, the organization produced a larger volume of research outputs than most other ATPS national chapters. This grant from IDRC's Think Tank Initiative (TTI) will allow ATPS-Tanzania to revamp and scale up its contribution to Tanzania's science and technology policy. Specifically, the grant will enable ATPS-Tanzania to recruit full-time staff, adopt specific organizational goals, and establish a rigorous monitoring system to assess progress made toward those goals.
