Exploiting Research INfrastructures potentiAl for boosting Research and Innovation in Africa


ERINA4Africa is a follow-up of the outcomes of the FEAST (Feasibility Study for the AfricaConnect Initiative) and ERINA

projects to provide African and EU policy makers with a detailed analysis of exploitable scenarios of existing and potential e-Infrastructures in Africa illustrating the return on infrastructure investments.


The ERINA4Africa study has accomplished:

  • Identification of the potential of e-Infrastructures in Africa with respect to e-Health, e-Learning and e-Government.
  • Support to actors in the African e-Infrastructures ecosystem to network and share knowledge through workshops and meetings.

The Virtual Observatory

ERINA4Africa Virtual Observatory makes available the results of the mapping activities to the broad community giving an insight into trends and current evolution of e-Infrastructures and, more in general, computing technologies in Africa. It is a common space where the international community of EU and African players can learn more and share knowledge on the use of ICT in Africa.
