Pretoria, South Africa
My name is Nozuko Hlwatika. I work at the Academy of Science of South Africa as a Project Administrator for the African Open Science Platform initiative, a three year (2016 – 2019) project in its pilot phase. Part of my job is finding ways of promoting Open Science particularly Open Data in aspects such as the following: Influencing Policy, Fostering Capacity Building, Scanning Infrastructure status in Africa, Issues of Incentives and Awareness Creation. I am fairly new to the field of Open Science I find it to be immensely important hence I am extremely passionate about it.
