The program is a multiyear capacity building program supported by Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and organized by STEPI-IICC.

The program had its aim to contribute to Korea-Ethiopia S&T development cooperation and also to capacity building of participants on S&T information analysis and management. Compared to the last year’s program, this year's capacity building program emphasized on two aspects.

First, it was strategically designed to hold more lectures that covered STI data related topics through close cooperation with Korean Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) in order to promote deeper knowledge on S&T information analysis. Second, more workshop sessions were provided to participants in order to encourage self-led research abilities of the attending participants.
