The COVID-19 pandemic has led to drastic changes in work culture and general lifestyle across the World, including Nigeria. Interestingly, the same period created an opportunity for Eko-Konnect to develop its cloud infrastructure.

To ensure participation of the Nigerian R&E community in the open science cloud services, Eko-konnect hosted a series of webinars to discuss the challenges and opportunities that Covid-19 presents for the Nigerian Research and Education Community to devise action plans to overcome the negative impact of Covid-19 in Nigeria.



Our Campus Technology Internship Program (CTIP) and ICT4Girls activities along promoted capacity building in STEM and participation in Citizen Science-based projects. These activities are ongoing as part of the national open science roadmap and activities in Nigeria to engage our women and youth in open science and strengthen the R&E community.
