More than ever before, Africans are turning to ICT-supported learning to grow their economies. In 2013, the eLearning Africa Report found that 40% of African technology-assisted learning professionals were using ICTs specifically for skills training, up from 18% the previous year.

The benefit of ICT-supported learning is that it allows employers to provide vocational training to a great number of workers for little cost. This year’s eLearning Africa, 28th – 30th May in Kampala, Uganda, will explore how technology  is revolutionising  learning and training across the continent, under the theme “Opening Frontiers to the Future”.

The CHAIN REDS initiative is proud to support the EU funded EUDAT project in developing a European collaborative data infrastructure for e-science as a layer in the overall European scientific e-infrastructure to complement the computing and networking layers.

In this perspective, a course on data services will be organized on April 2, 2014 from 9:00am to 12:30pm at the Megaron Athens International Conference Centre in Athens, Greece. This course, collocated with the 2nd International Conference on Research Infrastructures (ICRI 2014) will introduce the fundamentals of data infrastructures and describe EUDAT's data services. For each service, the course will explain what the service does, what the advantages of using such a service would be and how you can use the service. The course will then go on to discuss some topics - such as persistent identifiers - in more detail, and explain why they are important. The persistent identifiers will be presented in the context of the Greek PID service operated by CHAIN REDS project partner GRNET and made available to all world regions via the CHAIN REDS project - in the context of intercontinental Virtual Research Communities.
