Strathmore University: Post-Graduate workshop on Digital Data in East Africa and Beyond

February 25

About this Event

We would like to invite applications for a day-long virtual workshop on digital data in East Africa scheduled to take place on 25 th February. It will be run by the Developing Data project, a network including Strathmore University’s Centre of Intellectual Property & Information Technology (CIPIT), Collaboration on International ICT Policy in East and Southern Africa (CIPESA), and the University of Edinburgh’s Centre of African Studies (CAS). The project looks at a range of both financial and political uses of data in East Africa and across the rest of the African continent. For more information please visit: https://developingdata.org The workshop will involve each participant giving a short presentation on a work in progress, for example, an article, dissertation chapter, or grant proposal. The students will then receive feedback on their presentations from academic staff involved in the network. There will also be opportunities for students to discuss methods, approaches, and findings among themselves. This workshop would represent a good opportunity to meet people working on similar subject areas, something that could facilitate future knowledge exchange and collaborations.

Please consider applying if:

  1. You are a masters or PhD student at either an East African university or the University of
    Edinburgh.
  2. You have a work in progress that is related to the themes covered by the Developing Data
    project.

Please email cipit@strathmore.edu if you would like to apply or if you have questions about the
event.
