GUS - Global University Project - Finnland
In this chapter, we describe the development of a global electronic university consortium to meet the challenge of global education in the twenty-first century by bringing together all kinds of higher education in- stitutions, governmental and non-governmental, business, and private, to exchange lectures and courses from country to country. We begin with a brief account of the steps taken over the past dozen years to pave the way for such an enterprise. Then we describe measures already being implemented to set in motion the first concrete phase: establishment of a Global/Pacific (electronic) University (GPU) Consortium. Questions of membership and organizational structure are discussed in light of GPU's intention to transcend cultural barriers, encouraging full participation from all levels of a global society. Finally it presents a specific agenda for the GPU in the upcoming year, and activities and initiatives planned for the near future.

First International Conference on Information and Communication 2006

First International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies and Development (ICTD2006)
May 25-26, 2006, Berkeley, California, U.S.A.

The past decade has witnessed an explosion in projects that apply information and communication technologies (ICT) to support socio-economic development. Every sector is involved ­ governments, academia, small start-ups, large corporations, inter-governmental organizations, and non-profits and non-governmental organizations. In spite of the
tremendous energy and resources behind these projects, scientifically sound research in this space is just beginning to emerge. What is the actual impact of ICT projects? What novel technology is required to meet development needs? What methodologies lead to success or failure of a project?
