EASTECO, the PLOS, and TCC Africa collaborate to implement open science principles in seven partner states -

The East African Science and Technology Commission (EASTECO), the Public Library of Science (PLOS), and the Training Centre in Communication (TCC Africa) will collaborate in the implementation of Open Science and Open Access principles for the EAC Partner States, which include Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, United Republic of Tanzania, Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda.

EASTECO is responsible for the overall strategic approach and management of the programs, while PLOS and TCC will help EASTECO realize its vision. This vision includes among other things supporting and implementing Open Access publishing and Open Science principles for EAC partner states; supporting conception, utilization, and production of science, and translation and communication of science; supporting openness of science: increasing transparency and inclusion in sharing research.

All three organizations are heavily invested in an Open future and want to work with stakeholders across the scholarly communication ecosystem of East Africa to promote and increase uptake of Open Access and Open Science more broadly.
