|Information Technology in Selected Countries (UNU, 1994, 148 pages)|
This volume is based on the activities of a project carried out cooperatively between the United Nations University and Trinity College, Dublin, with a financial grant from the Government of Ireland. The project was undertaken from 1985 to 1990 as a part of the UNU Programme on Microprocessors and Informatics and was intended to help strengthen institutional capacities in developing countries in the area of information technology through the provision of training fellowships and to undertake research study into the processes of innovation in information technology.
During the life-span of the project, a total of 36 individuals from 9 developing countries received the opportunity under the UNU fellowships programme to undertake postgraduate training and research at Trinity College in various informatics-related areas. The country reports that comprise this volume were intended to form a part of the baseline information required for research into the processes of innovation in information technology. The reports were prepared by three of the former UNU fellows and by Dr Eileen Drew, who was the Research Coordinator of the project.
