Four NREN Members of UbuntuNet Alliance namely; Kenya Education Network (KENET), Mozambique Research and Education Network (MoRENet), Tanzania Education and Research Network (TERNET) and Research and Education Network of Uganda (RENU) are part of the stakeholders of the Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) Solutions for the Internet of Things Workshop which will be held from 17-21 February 2020 at the Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda.
Other stakeholders involved in the workshop include the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), UbuntuNet Alliance and the Internet Society.
Members from the African Research and Education Networking community especially from East Africa are therefore being invited to participate in this workshop as NRENs are considered key for the growth of Internet of Things (IoT) applications in this region, as they can host the access infrastructure to foster research in IoT and to serve the IoT community at large
A limited number of grants are available to support attendance of selected candidates with priority being given to candidates from Eastern Africa. Interested candidates may apply for grants online before 6th December 2019.
