Conference attendance

Olabisi co-initiated, co-organised and co-hosted the WoSTEG2020 (International Workshop on Secure and Trustworthy E-Governance), in partial execution of the STEGA project, held in both Nigeria and Zambia. The workshop fostered deliberations on e-governance among varied stakeholders from the public & private sectors, government parastatals, policy-making agencies and academia in the two countries. WoSTEG2020 was recognised for its notable contributions to Knowledge Exchange (KEF), which was particularly reported in the Zambia Times

Recent research outputs

In collaboration with other academics, Olabisi successfully secured a research grant towards the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) initiative. This funding was deployed to undertake STEGA project (Secure and Trustworthy E-Governance for enhanced and accessible public services in Africa).

STEGA (Secure and Trustworthy E-Governance for enhanced and accessible public services in Africa) is a multi-disciplinary project that aims to advance the state of e-Governance in Africa. It focuses on addressing long-standing problems of availability, coverage, policies and legislation, as well as emerging issues of security, privacy and trust, in relation to e-Governance.
