ICT Center of Excellence

The ICT Center of Excellence (CoE) was established as a vehicle for rapid development of ICT, and as a catalyst to help realize the promise of ICT as a key enabler and accelerator of socio-economic development.

The Center of Excellence aims to utilize innovation based on high quality research and development, training, consulting, and technology transfer, to drive rapid advances of ICT, and its deployment for breakthrough results in national development. ICT CoE will do this by developing networks of partnerships with organizations, both public and private, and local as well as international. These partnerships will enable the CoE to develop into a hub or focal point that will mobilize a wide range of resources.


Our RESEARCH objective

Carry out research that advances knowledge, is recognized for its excellence and generates breakthrough, user-focused technologies.

Some of our Research Themes are:

  • Business Solutions
  • Academic Content
  • Technology Transfer
  • Best Practices
  • Human Computer Interface

Organizational values are extremely important to a research organization such as COE. They influence behavior in pursuing the organization's Mission and provide the basis for high levels of achievement for the longer term.

How we behave and what we value is important in building our unique culture and external identity. With this in mind, COE has developed a core set of values that are guiding principles for what we do and who we are.


The vision of the Center is to become a focal point for the advancement of ICT research, innovation, collaboration, dissemination of valuable knowledge, and training. ICT CoE will thereby serve as a vehicle for rapid ICT advances that support the socio-economic development of Ethiopia as it moves towards integrating itself into the global knowledge economy. ICT CoE, as a result of this becomes a reference center in ICT for the country as well as the region.
