Introducing GEONET: studying Sub-Saharan Africa’s knowledge economies
I’m happy to announce the launch of the new GEONET project: studying ‘Changing Connectivities and the Potentials of Sub-Saharan Africa’s Knowledge Economy.’
This five-year project, funded by an ERC Starting Grant, aims to understand the difference that changing connectivities are having on Sub-Saharan Africa’s emerging information economies.
For a full introduction of the project, and associated team members, please head over to the Geonet site to take a look: geonet.oii.ox.ac.uk
We have a great group of researchers assembled, and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish over the next few years.
