“Science and Technology is the bedrock for the development of any modern economy. My Government is setting up a Directorate for Science, Technology and Innovation to develop a framework for scientific research. Initially, this Directorate will be midwifed in the Office of the President but shall work closely with the Ministry of Technical and Higher Education.”
-His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio (Public State Opening of the Parliament of Sierra Leone)
We are scientists, technologists, researchers, artists and more. But we are problem-solvers first. We believe that technology and innovation must be used to solve problems that impact the broader society.
Every philosopher has a wise saying about time or the lack thereof. We agree, and that’s why we think, move, and build quickly.
Humans and machines have been pursuing advanced knowledge since day 0. YES, self learning is important, AND we aspire to intentionally learn with and from others too.
The biggest challenges of our time will not be solved in a cubicle by a lone genius. That is why at DSTI we believe in openly engaging with all our partners to tackle these challenges.
At DSTI, diversity is not a checkbox. It is embedded in how we work. As such we enable an environment of open collaboration where everyone can offer their best and most fulfilling selves.
More data has been created in the past 2 years than in the entire human history! The future world for which we are creating solutions today is hard to imagine. So we must stay focused on the future.
