Open Foundation West Africa Hosts OpenCon 2017 in Kumasi


Open Foundation West Africa is excited to share that we will be hosting an OpenCon satellite event in Kumasi on 25th February 2017. OpenCon satellite events are local meetings about Open Access, Open Data, and Open Education: the free availability of scholarly articles, data, and educational resources online. Satellite events are held in partnership with a global annual OpenCon meeting.

Our event in Kumasi will bring together students, researchers, members of the public, and open movement enthusiasts who are interested in learning more about the accessibility of information in research and education. There will be talks by local speakers, and much more.
