A dynamic association for all those who support the idea of strengthening the role of women in science and engineering in Africa.
An important function of SA WISE is to improve communication among women scientists and engineers.
Africa, including South Africa has a critical shortage of trained technological people. In 1980 North America had 2679 scientists and engineers involved in reserach and developement per million population; Latin America had 251; Africa had only 49. In 1993, the USA had 7600 people per million involved in R & D, Japan had 7300.
