The UNESCO Chair in ICT4D convenes a programme of seminars and workshops on all aspects of ICT4D. These are often held when colleagues from overseas are visiting the UK, and may therefore be called at short notice. All of our seminars are open to anyone interested in attending, and some are made available subsequently in video format. Slide decks and videos of presentations are made available below where they have been provided by presenters. Full details of seminars and workshops are always posted on this page.
