The International College
The AFNIC International College gathers the international organisations members of AFNIC. To date, it has more than 30 members including a number of local registries. Four continents are currently represented: Africa, North America, Europe and Oceania.
In accordance with AFNIC’s Articles of association, members of the International College elect a representative to sit on AFNIC’s 10-member Board of Directors.
The transfer of technology and knowledge lies at the heart of the International College’s strategy; more than 15 FFTI (Training of Information Technology Trainers) courses have been delivered to date in parallel with the creation and distribution of a free registry management software titled Codev-NIC.
Fund objectives
The International College Fund provides support for completion of projects with finalised plans that require financial and/or technical support as appropriate. Projects are submitted and screened in accordance with procedures for periodic calls for proposals.
The actions undertaken by the International College in a rationale of co-development are intended to reach implementation in the form of multilateral projects.
Creation of the Fund reflects the ever-increasing commitment of AFNIC and its International College to promoting and contributing to the development of Internet use.
