The project aims to: (i) improve the ICT-related skills of students and faculty members at the Universidade Eduardo Mondlane, (ii) strengthen the development of innovative IT applications in the context of development initiatives, (iii) support the birth and development of new entrepreneurship, and (iv) help develop a knowledge network among research centers. ICT4Dev also wants to contribute to the reduction of the gender gap in Mozambique.
