CoE Network for Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries in Africa

Project No 9RAF08075
Title CoE Network for Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries in Africa
Description The aim of this project is to build a dedicated Centre of Excellence mechanism to address the capacity needs of the Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries in Africa. This is in recognition of the unique linguistic challenges they encounter in assimilating new knowledge, particularly in the areas of new technologies, through a second language.
The project will bring together programs and courses developed within the ITU and its partners, as well as the Spanish and Portuguese speaking global community, that are available for sharing, in the areas of telecommunication policy, regulation, management and new technologies and services with the final aim to setting up a sound and self-sustainable capacity building environment in the Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries in Africa.
In view of the move towards a single integrated Centre of Excellence in Africa, links will be maintained between the networks established under this project and those set up under the Africa CoE project. Such links will facilitate exchange of skills, experts, content as well as experiences in telecommunications/ICT development.
This project will seek synergies with the Africa Centre of Excellence project with a view to eventually integrating it into the global Africa network of Excellence.
