As countries and industries across the world make the much-anticipated shift towards digital transformation, new and exciting advancements are underway. In a move that is set to further transform and advance policy in the region, Microsoft has partnered with Strathmore University-Kenya, to digitally transform their law school.
In so doing, Microsoft has sponsored the construction of the Microsoft Auditorium in its Sir Thomas Moore Building, and separately founded the high-tech Microsoft Policy Innovation Centre (“PIC”).
The PIC will draw upon and convene the talents of academia, industry and policy experts, and government. Together, they will address emerging issues at the forefront of the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals, Industries and Digital Transformation and explore the policy challenges we face in the region to overcome these issues.
Microsoft has provided all equipment and work on the design for the auditorium facility, aimed at providing an immersive experience to students, participants and visitors. They will also provide software, solutions and training for the implementation of the project. The Policy and Innovation Centre will be equipped with Office 365, providing users with productivity tools to enhance their day-to-day experience.
Microsoft and Strathmore will also work together on programmes that address ICT- related themes that include legal and compliance, cloud, mobile and cybersecurity across modern government, efficient judiciary, national security and transformative education.
