About DTCs


copied from: https://academy.itu.int/main-activities/digital-transformation-centres-initiative
The Digital Transformation Centres Initiative was launched by ITU in partnership with Cisco in September 2019 during ITU Telecom World held in Budapest, Hungary. The initiative seeks to create a global network of centres, whose main purpose is to develop digital skills mainly at basic and intermediate level for citizens. The initiative contributes to the broader goal of building an inclusive digital society, and ensuring that lack of knowledge and skills is not a barrier to participation in the digital economy.

First Phase

10 DTCs have been selected for the first phase which will run for 18 months from January 2020 to end of July 2021. The 10 DTCs have been selected from Africa (4), Americas (3), and Asia Pacific (3) regions. At the end of the first phase, an open call will be made for more potential DTCs to join the network.
