Hi Jos, all,

GEANT leads two projects with EC funding to help emerging NRENs in Eastern Europe and Africa: 

* EAP Connect where GEANT participates with Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine - https://eapconnect.eu/about-us/ 
* AfricaConnect3 where GEANT participates with the 3 major regional networks in Africa - https://www.africaconnect3.net/

Best regards,

This is a rather struggling task to build up NREN's like we are familiar with.
