CPRsouth 2016 Young Scholar Awards

Following highly successful joint Afro-Asian CPR conferences in Mauritius in 2012, and India in 2013, CPRafrica and CPRsouth formally merged under the banner of CPRsouth in 2014. Since then, CPRsouth has hosted conferences in the Cradle of Humankind in South Africa (2014), and at the Innovation Center for Big Data and Digital Convergence at Yuan Ze University, Taiwan (2015).

This year’s conference is co-hosted by COSTECH and TCRA in Zanzibar from 8-10 September. It will include sessions on cutting-edge developments in ICT policy and regulation in the South and discussion of the research-policy interface.

As part of the capacity building initiative, 30 Young Scholars from Africa and the Asia-Pacific region have been selected to participate in a tutorial programme. They will be taught by recognised scholars and practitioners from Africa and Asia, and will be attending the main conference thereafter.  Congratulations to the Young Scholars of 2016.
