Strengthening Training Capacity in Wireless Networking in Africa

Project No 7RAF09078
Title Strengthening Training Capacity in Wireless Networking in Africa
Description This project will contribute concretely to develop networks of expertise by transferring low-cost wireless technology know-how to African training and/or educational institutions, by mentoring students and sharing knowledge through e-learning, augmented by missions to transfer specific skills. This will involve the establishment of training centres on wireless technologies at selected African training and/or educational institutions, training of trainers on related Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) curricula, provision of training materials (e.g., lab bundles), and the launching of specific training opportunities. The project will encourage the participation of women and young people in the ICT sector.
