LACNIC is currently working on the following projects in Latin America and the Caribbean:
A program aimed at contributing to the development of the Information Society by funding research projects selected through public calls for proposals and rewarding successful initiatives deployed within the region.
A capacity building project especially designed for Haiti and its specific needs: expanding network knowledge and creation, strengthening spaces for policy makers, especially in the fields of IP telephony, networks, security, and other technology and development issues.
A program that seeks to increase computer security incident response capabilities through applied research initiatives, promoting CSIRT creation, providing training at regional level, and generating collaboration opportunities, among other activities.
The goal of the +Raíces project is the installation of anycast copies of the F and L root servers in the LACNIC service region.
SUPPORTING EXTERNAL INITIATIVES
Supporting regional organizations so that they can hold events (seminars, workshops, conferences, etc.) and produce widely distributed printed materials.
Participation in each of these projects varies, so we recommend regularly checking for calls for proposals/candidates and following the projects on social media: @programafrida, @amparo_lacnic, or their Facebook pages.
In the case of FRIDA, calls for proposals are issued and notified through the project's mailing list. You can subscribe to infofrida through our programafrida.net website.
If you have a project or idea you believe is related to what we do, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
