Erik-Jan Bos speaking at WACREN2021

"NRENs are more important then ever. Both Research & Education are global endeavors therefor NRENs should think global and act local embracing new technologies, becoming the systems integrator, creating new services and stimulate community and collaboration"

New Technologies, Innovation and 4th Industrial Revolution is the title of todays WACREN 2021 session in which our Policy & Strategy Officer will share insights. 

Erik-Jan, together with Paschal Anosike – Centre for African Entrepreneurship and Leadership (CAEL), Dr. Tshiamo Motshegwa – CEO, BotsREN and  Prof. Simon Taylor, Brunel University will talk about new and emerging technologies such as IoT, Cloud Computing, AI, Robotics, Blockchain, AR/VR, etc. 

The concept of education is also changing globally to meet the skill set required for these technologies and the new era.  Is it possible for NRENs and their communities to position themselves as leaders of influence in these changing dynamics and increase their capacity to provide meaningful contributions as key players within the entrepreneurship ecosystem.
