DSV and the Swedish Program for Information and Communication Technology in Developing Regions (SPIDER) collaborate with UCSC to develop the needed human resources in order to create a centre of excellence for research in all aspects concerning on-line learning environments. The results of this project are going to be of value in expanding the initiative to other kinds of learning needs and for the replication of the model in other developing countries. DSV has been delegated the coordination of the cooperation between UCSC and Swedish universities in the NeLC project.
