National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) worldwide are contributing in several ways to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); African NRENs are no exception. Though NRENs directly focus on the research and educationĀ  (R&E) niche, the outcomes and impact of their work transcend the socio-economic, living standards, environment, health etc. It appears the multiplier effects of the work of NRENs on SDGs are far-reaching.

Because of this, Regional Research and Education Networks (RRENs) in Africa, in the framework of the AfricaConnect3 project, will hold a webinar to discuss the UN SDGs and how NRENs have or can support the achievement of these ‘Global Goals’ by 2030.
