Sida Supported ICT Projects at Universities and Research Organizations in Sri Lanka
Alan Greenberg , George Sadowsky
Sidas Department for Research Cooperation, SAREC, provides assistance for strengthening national research capacity in developing countries. The current Sri Lanka research cooperation program covers 13 projects in universities and research institutes. Sida believes that a sound foundation in computers and access to the Internet has become essential for modern higher education and research. Encouraged by the positive results in several small projects, this present larger-scale project began in 1998.
