In the short term, this training course supports the strengthening of competence in 'Analysis - production - management & system operation of science and technology information'. In the long run, this training is to contribute to the development of science and technology in Ethiopia.

This year, STEPI conducted a demand survey on the training target institution in the course planning stage, and considered the topics of interest of the trainees and development strategies and tasks of the organization. In particular cooperation with the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI), both institutes shared Korean experience and know-how in the field of science and technology information system and management.

During the training period, the know-how for detailed information management and policy management was introduced, such as Korea's science and technology development policy tool, the establishment of national science and technology knowledge information service and system, and open science platform. Also, several meaningful field visits were conducted to KISTI, KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology), ETRI (Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute), KISTI Information Service Center for SMEs and related enterprises.
