AFRICAN UNION HEADS OF STATE SUMMIT 2010 THEME ON ICT

In 2009 and 2010, VTT provided support the the African Union, Deparment of Human Resources, Science and Technology, as it was preparing AU summit that had in 2010 the theme “Information and Communications Technologies in Africa: Challenges and Prospects for Development”. We seconded an expert to work at the AUC in Addis Ababa, as well as other support to AUC.

VTT worked as the lead consultant preparing a background document reviewing the status of ICT in Africa, and summarising the key issues identified by other consultants supporting the preparation of the Summit. The report looked in particular at the enabling environment, capacity building, education and research, as well as the economics of Internet in Africa.

The project was completed in 2009-2010.
