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.
