AEON (Africa Earth Observatory Network) collaborates with a large number of scientists, research institutes and business partners throughout Africa and globally. See below to view and explore some these connections that they have grouped geographically and topically for convenience.


There are also links to websites that dovetail with and expand on AEON’s visions and projects (eg. Inkaba yeAfrica, !Khure Africa and Iphakade).
