The Institut for Technology Systems (ITS) of the University of Oslo (http://its.uio.no) is located in the Building of UNIK, Gunnar Randers vei 19, 2027 Kjeller.

By public transport you either take the train to Lillestrøm, and then "whatever" bus going to Kjeller. Closest bus stop is "Forskningsparken (Skedsmo)".
Alternatively take a bus going directly from Oslo to Kjeller. ITS has also an own bus schedules for students coming from Ifi to Kjeller, the schedule is available on http://its.uio.no



We are writing a project proposal for Innovation Norway, answering the Visjon 2030 call. Please spread this information further to those who might be interested. (this page http://inno.BasicInternet.no ).

Main objective:

  • Vi bringer Norske partner sammen for å skape et ecosystem for digital services in Tanzania

How to

  • Build the ecosystem for Digital Empowerment in Tanzania through
    • A) Education ("lær kidsa koding") - andre? (Torgeir?)
    • B) knowledge of autonomous energy systems (Solklyngen, Ife)
    • C) Education for Agriculture (Yara, Sokoine University)
    • D) Digital services, digital Wallet (Telenor?)
  • Have the pilot implemented in 1-3 villages, who have been empowered through the ongoing activities from Amotel i Tanzania and the Basic Internet Foundation through http://Digi.BasicInternet.no

Expected Outcome

  • Cost estimate for the "digital empowerment", leading to "Connect the Unconnected" 4.000 villages in Tanzania http://CTU.BasicInternet.no


Innovasjon Norge has established a call for proposal for Visjon 2030[1]. Our proposal will close the gap from existing activities, focussing on digital health in Tanzania, to the complete digital value chain.

The Basic Internet Foundation and partners have received funding from the Research Council of Norway to build the Digital Health pilots in Tanzania through http://DigI.BasicInternet.no. These pilots will bring digital health information access to health stations in 2 (phase A) + 10 villages (phase B). We are supported by the local mobile operator Amotel, who received governmental funding for connecting 3 villages.

These pilot cities will be extended to form the "digital ecosystem" through the envisaged project.

We work together to prepare for "Connect the Unconnected" 4.000 villages in Tanzania, being a showcase for the Digital Development Partnership of the World Bank[2]
