A total of ten people, including university officials and inventors, make up the national delegation.

Last year, Angola had planned to present 19 projects. However, the event ended up not being realized due to the covid-19 pandemic.

For this year, the country will present a total of 15 projects. Gabriel Luís Miguel, coordinator of the national delegation, explained, in statements to Angop, that the projects for iENA 2021 are mainly focused on public health, with emphasis on covid-19 and combating natural disasters.

Gabriel Luís Miguel indicated that most of the projects are from Universidade Agostinho Neto and Universidade Metodista de Angola.

The country has participated in this event since 2009 and, since then, it has won a total of 79 medals (19 gold, 28 silver and 32 bronze). In the last edition alone, which took place in 2019, Angola won a total of nine medals, including six gold.

The event will take place from the 4th to the 7th of November, in Nuremberg, a city in Germany.
