This year we celebrate 10 years of the AfricaConnect project. To celebrate the milestone, we asked the three CEOs of the implementing partners to give their thoughts on the progress of the project.
UbuntuNet Alliance CEO, Dr. Matthews Mtumbuka had this to say:
“AfricaConnect has provided the African Research and Education networking community with an otherwise impossible opportunity to collaborate, share knowledge and exponentially improve access to research and education tools and services. AfricaConnect has helped UbuntuNet Alliance build, expand and consolidate its UbuntuNet Network and the Alliance and its member NRENs are delighted to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the project. We are grateful to the European Union and all partners who have worked tirelessly to ensure the story of this project is a successful one.”
