The African Scientific Integration Network (AScIN) is an iniative of african scientists, working in different fields and in different continents (Africa, Europe, America and Asia).
In late 2012-2013, the idea about organizing a conference that will bring togeher african scientists working in Africa and abroad has emerged among a small group of friends. This idea will be concretized, and the first CREPAS conference will be organized in 2018. The conference welcomed scientists form 7 countries in Africa and some from Europe and America. The concept of the conference received a huge support from the participants, and at the end of the conference, everyone voted for the creation of a network that will institutionalize the concept in order to extend it to other projects.
