Abstract

Gary Marsden established the UCT Centre in Information and Communication Technology for Development (ICT4D) in 2008. The Centre provides a space from which researchers can apply their disciplinary expertise to ICT problems experienced on the African continent and has gathered a critical mass of researchers and postgraduate students who can strengthen this ªeld. It provides an important base for African and international researchers in the area of ICT4D from which to undertake research and train postgraduate students and to make a powerful statement on the significance of this area of research in the developing world. The Centre’s researchers demonstrate how the application of modern information technologies can be applied specifically to solving some of the problems facing the African continent.
