The AfricaConnect3 project is an initiative which is run in collaboration between the European Union, the pan-European networking organisation GÉANT and the three regional organisations supporting local research and education networking across Africa:
- UbuntuNet Alliance: The implementing partner for Eastern and Southern Africa.
- WACREN: The implementing partner for Western and Central Africa.
- ASREN: The implementing partner for North Africa.
The UbuntuNet Alliance, WACREN and ASREN are the regional strategic alliances that deliver AfricaConnect3 in the field. These organisations encourage and assists regional and trans-regional networking developments in Africa. Together they form the backbone of the pan-African research and education networking community.
The UbuntuNet Alliance, WACREN, ASREN and GÉANT work closely together to exploit synergies, foster intra-regional connections and share best practice towards the successful execution of the project.
The participating African NRENs are supported by European NRENs for training and human capacity building purposes.
