From October 8 to 12, 2023, the WIDE Project participated in the 18th Internet Governance Forum (IGF Kyoto 2023) held at the Kyoto International Conference Center, Japan. The IGF is an annual meeting hosted by the United Nations where a wide range of stakeholders engage in dialogue on Internet governance, among several other issues related to the Internet.
In a booth at the IGF Village, WIDE exhibited research and educational activities conducted in cooperation with other countries, mainly in the Asia-Pacific region, and featured SOI Asia & AI3 (including APIE) and ARENA-PAC activities.
The exhibition emphasized the importance of global collaboration in research and education networks. Videos introduced project information and activities, and visitors contributed to the analog visualization of research and education networks in their region and also shared their “dream RENs.”
