Project workshop during IST-Africa 2007 Conference

07-05-2007 (UNESCO) One of the workshops held during IST-Africa 2007 Conference (9-11 May 2007, Maputo, Mozambique) will focus on the UNESCO/Hewlett Packard project "Piloting Solutions for reversing brain-drain to brain gain for Africa".

The objective of the workshop is to initiate the first practical steps in implementing the UNESCO-Hewlett Packard partnership to prototype solutions to reverse brain drain into brain gain for Africa. This will be the first in a series of face-to-face meetings among the participants in this project.

The workshop will bring together representatives of beneficiary institutions as well as scientists and engineers engaged in teaching and research and industrial research and development, administrative officials of research institutions, and government officials responsible for policies affecting relevant activities including access to high-performance networks for research and education in Africa.
