Welcome to Spider

The Swedish Program for ICT in Developing Regions (Spider) is a resource center in Information and Communication Technology for Development (ICT4D). We bring together actors from different parts of society to promote and improve the use of ICT for development.  

Modes of Operation

This is done in a number of ways. Our four modes of operation are Projects, Research Networks and Capacity building.

Thematic focus

Thematically, we have three focus areas: Transparency and Accountability, Education and Learning; and Health and Wellbeing.

The response to the open call for education projects was overwhelming. Spider received over 150 applications from 12 different countries in three continents. A high number of these proposals were high quality, and the reviewing took longer than anticipated.
