    IN-AFRICA

    The Implementation Network Africa – short: IN-Africa – has been initiated by institutions from eight African countries (Zimbabwe, South Africa, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Nigeria and Liberia). Its main objective is to establish an Internet of FAIR Data and Services based on the principles of African philosophy and supported by African governance of data, data ownership, protection and security. This objective will be realized by tackling various tasks, such as connecting African Library services to FAIR, linking African Social Science networks to Implementation Networks of GO FAIR in Social Sciences and expanding communication and media attention on FAIR in Africa. IN leader is Mijram van Reisen, Professor of Computing for Society at Leiden University and Professor of International Relations, Innovation and Care at Tilburg University.
