Topics being discussed

The meeting was a continuation of earlier exchanges on a) topics for student work and b) collaborations for bigger projects

We identified the following areas

  1. Freemium Model for Access, with free access to information, and premium access to broadband services. Information is described through the envisaged Internet Lite standard, being text, pictures and lightweight protocols. AMP is an example of such lightweight services. One aspect of work is linked to the Internet Lite/Freemium Model, and another aspect to the sustainable connectivity using an affordable OPEX of less than 20 USD/month
  2. Building Wireless Information Spots (InfoSpots) with the focus on value creation for the local communities. Such InfoSpots can have the focus on e.g.
Digital Health Promotion (DHP), short videos/animations on health topics, see http://Yeboo.com and http://GlobalHealthMedia.org
Agriculture, see http://DigitalGreen.org
Education - see own bullet
Innovation, e.g. addressing women entrepreneurship in the digital age
Governmental services, e.g. GovStack or the National Knowledge Portal
Energy usage and the uptake of renewable energy in developing economies
  1. The educational platform for empowerment: applying microservice architecture from http://GovStack.global to Education
involving European EdTech, Nordic EdTech
generating the school platform for local content provision, empowerment and student involvement
scale-up to the national initiative in Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia
  1. Resilient communities in the digital age, what needs to be done to create value for the communities
  2. Digital Health Promotion (DHP) as driver for the digital transformation
examples of videos/animations, see http://Yeboo.com and http://GlobalHealthMedia.org
