The researchers expressed these concerns during a meeting with Parliamentary Commissions for Health, Education, Higher education, and Science and Technology, adding that without financing he results of their researches are not the ones that could be expected the most.

The teachers upgrading to enable them to conduct scientific research, financing of researches, lack of chemical agents at laboratories, disclosure of the scientific works among other issues, are part of the concerns the Angolan researchers intend to see sorted out.

Suzanete Costa, from the Centre for Studies in Support of Training and Research at the public Agostinho Neto University, regretted the fact that the results of the investigations carried out so far do not get due attention from the competent organs of the state.

In Angola research is still scarce, with variable quality, and it is often difficult to assess its relevance and costs involved, which jeopardizes the results of programmes and services in all sectors.

The National Development Plan 2018-2022 (PND) includes improvement of the quality of Higher Education and Development of Scientific and Technological Research.

The programme also highlights the importance the Angolan government pays to the development of scientific and technological research, particularly to the career of researchers.

This programme aims to Develop the human, scientific and technological potential of the country through the consolidation of the National System of Science and Technology, training of researchers, promotion and articulation between scientific research and higher education institutions, as well as the creation of the Academy of Sciences of Angola.
