The Basic Internet Foundation was established in December 2014 as a collaboration between the University Graduate Centre (UNIK), now University of Oslo (UiO) and Kjeller Innovasjon AS to foster Internet light for all, the free access to information for everyone on the globe. The Foundation works for:
- Free access to low capacity Internet as a carrier of digital content to people in areas with low admission and / or no Internet coverage.
- Support of organisations and companies to adapt and disseminate information for the affected recipients should be able to help themselves.
- Basic Information regarding education, healthcare, agriculture, innovation or other services that contribute to increased welfare and value creation that benefit the population in the respective areas.
- The Foundation will offer their benefits based on greatest need and in many areas as possible.
The early collaborators were Professor Josef Noll, Linda Firveld, Danica Radovanovic, Iñaki Garitano, Gunnar Nilsen, Tor Blomseth, Stian Løvold, Bjarne Haugen and Vidar Sannerhaugen. Since then we have developed into an international team spanning with local representations in Norway, USA, Serbia and Tanzania - see About us on BasicInternet.org.Together we have extensive experience with entrepreneurship, development, implementation and operation.
