Knowledge Exchange Visit - 2009

SAFIPA have announced that they are accepting applications for the 2010 knowledge exchange visit to Finland. I previously wrote about the Knowledge exchange visit:

The Governments of Finland and South Africa have been working together in the fields of Science, Technology and Innovation, as part of that mandate SAFIPA is planning a knowledge exchange visit for South African entrepreneurs and other relevant people.

From the Invitation email:

Open call to all interested parties. This time the call will be especially directed to people interested in e-Health, e-Learning and e-Government. The call will opened Jan 30th and will close on Feb 12th. People from the previous call are encouraged to re-apply. Only one person per organization will be accepted, so organizations will need to prioritize.
