EthERNet e-Research Hackfest, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia – February, 13-24, 2017





In recognition of the need for the community to acquire the necessary skills to support the promotion of open and reproducible scientific research, EthERNet hosts a 2-week e-Research Hackfest in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The event is supported by the European Commission through EthERNet’s participation in the Ubuntunet Alliance that is partner in the Horizon 2020 Sci-GaIA project.


Background and objectives

The main objective of the e-Research Hackfest is to integrate scientific use cases through a pervasive adoption of web technologies and standards and make them available to their end users through Science Gateways (entities connected to distributed computing, data and services of interest to the Community of Practice the end users belong to).

The past Sci-GaIA e-Research Summer Hackfest offers a first insight to the activities during the e-Research Hackfest to be held in Addis Ababa and what could be expected as outcomes from the participation in this venue.

Venue and dates

The e-Research Hackfest will take place from 13 – 24 February 2017 at the premises of Ethiopian Education & Research Network (EthERNet) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
