Share your insight: Help shape Internet2 collaboration with West and Central Africa

Internet2 formalized collaboration with the West and Central Africa Research and Education Network (WACREN) through an MOU signing during the most recent Global Summit in April 2015. We are excited for this collaboration in support of our respective memberships, as universities in West and Central Africa and Internet2 members already work closely on research and education initiatives, particularly in the areas of climate change, public health and agriculture.
 
To launch the formal cooperation program, Global Programs is inviting staff from member universities to join working groups. This is an incredible chance to shape the collaboration between WACREN and Internet2, and we invite you to be a part of it.  
 
If you are already involved in existing or planned cooperation within West and Central Africa, particularly in Nigeria, Ghana, and Senegal, participate in the launch of a technical sub-community. Please contact the Internet2 Global Programs team if you'd like to get involved.
