The Royal Society Africa Prize nominations are now being accepted for 2023. The purpose of the Royal Society Africa Prize is to honor research scientists working in Africa who have made significant contributions to their fields of study.
To better reflect how modern research is conducted, the Society is soliciting nominations of collaborative ventures, organizations, or teams for nearly all of its honors this year. Additionally, the Society is very eager to increase the diversity of people who get nominations for its prizes, so please take into account all contacts and colleagues. The previous honor, the Royal Society Pfizer Award, was given out for the last time in 2016.
The Royal Society Africa Prize 2022 is awarded to Professor Novel Njweipi Chegou for his work in the

The medal is of bronze, awarded annually and is accompanied by a gift of £2,000.
