The Burundi Project at the Department of Computer Science (official web page) is a collaboration of the Department with the Pro-Africa Foundation. It is a part of a wider collaboration, named "Burundi Project", activated some years ago between several organizations and foundations (pro-Africa Foundation, University of Ngozi, Don Gnocchi Foundation, Giorgio Zanotto Foundation) and the University of Verona.
The active project provides
- the participation of the University of Verona to the didactic work of the Bachelor of Arts in Nursing at the University of Ngozi (Burundi);
- the help for the management and funding of the hospital of Ngozi, also for didactic purpose.
The new project provides to study, design, and initiate a medical second-opinion protocol and software system. For this purpose, the Department of Computer Science started a research grant whose goals include:
- a feasibility study,
- the design,
- the implementation and management
