The African Academy of Sciences (The AAS) Research Management Programme in Africa
(ReMPro Africa) is developing good standards of practice tailored at assisting African research institutions in their benchmarking function geared at improving their overall research systems allow easy assessment on institutions by funders and potential funders
The process consists of measure taken by institutions toward improving efficacy of its researchers but not the research process itself.
ReMPro Africa launched in 2016 alongside a process to develop standards for Good Financial Grant Practice. Members of the African Organization for Standardization
unanimously voted in favour of adoption of the Final Draft African Standard for the GFGP in June
2018, and the GFGP became a new international standard, ARS 1651:2018. The next stage is to
develop an international standard for Good Research Management Practice (GRMP) mirrored on
the GFGP process.
