TANZICT Supporting Knowledge Exchange and Partnership Mission to Finland, November 2013

As part of TANZICT 's Tanzania Innovation Program (TaFinn Knowledge Exchange), TANZICT is organising a Knowledge Exchange and Partnership Mission for Tanzanian Universities and ICT Stakeholders to Finland for up to 7 days in November 2013. Up to 10 participants will be supported to meet with Finnish Universities to share experiences in relation to ICT, Innovation, Living Labs and Entrepreneurship.

The purpose of this mission is to create new partnerships and develop existing collaborations between Tanzanian and Finnish Universities. The Tanzanian participants will have the opportunity to learn about research being undertaken by Finnish Universities and how living labs are used to support research. Ultimately this type of face-to-face Knowledge Exchange will support stronger collaboration links between Tanzania and Finland.

TANZICT, which is hosted at COSTECH is a Bilateral collaboration project between the Ministry of Communications, Science and Technology (MCST), Tanzania and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.
