iMENTORS has started to map in a virtual observatory the levels of connectivity, types of networks, data infrastructures, e-tools, and projects, etc. that are currently available for researchers in Sub-Saharan Africa. 
iMENTORS, an FP-7 funded project launched in April 2012 by Stockholm University and Gov2u, is a web-based platform serving as a knowledge repository for sharing and aggregating data on e-infrastructure projects throughout sub-Saharan Africa. The platform is going live on 15 July.

We are in the final phase of building the online virtual observatory platform.


The alpha version has been online and operational with the final additions uploaded by April 2013. The beta version will be available to the public starting July 2013.


The iMENTORS project was presented at the Euro ICT Conference held in Lisbon on November 27th to the 28th. It was received well and we look forward to contact the people that were interested in submitting information about their projects.


Join our Community of Practice! Register and create your own or your organisation’s public profile to exchange ideas, expertise and best practices, find partners, contacts and opportunities in e-infrastructure development, or increase the visibility of your own project.
