Africa and Europe join forces in Training on Free Technology

More networking of African IT specialists with Europe and joint building of advanced training materials – this is what a new partnership of FOSSFA's and GIZ’s ict@innovation programme with the Europe-wide ‘Free Technology Academy’ (FTA) is all about. The Free Technology Academy (FTA), financially supported by the Life Long Learning programme (LLP) of the European Commission, is a collaboration between the Netherlands-based Free Knowledge Institute and three European universities.

ict@innovation training book (re-)launched at conference on "ICT and rural economic development" in Berlin

Last week, the German "ICT for Development" community met in Berlin for a two day gathering on the topic of "ICT and rural economic development" organized by GTZ on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). I had the pleasure to be a moderator of a working group, which deliberated on "innovative business models". Of course I could not resist to talk about our ict@innovation product "Free your IT-Business in Africa!”.
