"Kemy is a scientist by training. After his studies, he could not find a job. He then decided to set up his own business. He is the owner of a bar and uses science and technology to make a profit... Agriculture, biomass, artificial intelligence, renewable energy. He knows how to use them to make a fortune."

In parallel, we are also organizing a workshop for African high school teachers on July 21-23, 2021. The details are here: https://indico.cern.ch/event/1050810/
