Ericsson and Smart Africa Digital Academy announce the digital upskilling of 100 policymakers and regulators across 19 African countries on the various topics of emerging technologies to better promote and boost digital transformation across Africa through education and capacity building.
Signed in September 2022, the collaboration aims to enhance the digital skills of a target group of senior officials from ministries and regulatory authorities in charge of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) by providing access to Ericsson’s global skills program, Ericsson Educate.
In addition to providing access to self-learning digital skills content, the Ericsson Educate program helped deliver a series of webinars led by 27 Subject Matter Experts from Ericsson. The collaboration ran from November 2022 to January 2023.
The specially curated virtual workshops covered topics related to emerging technologies that are part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), such as 5G networks, the Internet of Things (IoT), Network Security, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML).
