The objective of this project is to develop and deliver a series of robotics, artificial intelligence and algorithm courses through the Polytechnic College of Suriname. This will include development of course content, forging partnerships for quality assurance, teacher training and establishing a network specialization and a robotic automation lab. The solution is innovative in the context of Suriname in the sense that this will be the first formal advanced technology education offering available locally at the tertiary level. The introduction of advanced technology training programs will provide an avenue for further development and certification of young people in Suriname in skills of the future.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
