[Workshop] Broadband Fundamentals and ICT Policy





infoDev is pleased to announce the first training program offered by the ICT policy & regulatory capacity building initiative for Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, and Central Asia (ECA). The training program, a workshop on Broadband Fundamentals and ICT Policy, will be held in Bishkek, Kyrgyz Republic, from April 16-20, 2012.

Participants include public officials, regulators, and business leaders from the ECA region with experience or interest in developing policy vision, skills sets, and institutional design in the ICT field.

The initiative will provide cutting-edge skills and knowledge to policymakers, regulators, and students from the region to enable them to respond to emerging market and technology developments in ICT, with a focus on broadband internet and mobile applications.

To implement this initiative, infoDev is partnering with the Center for Global Communication Studies at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania.
