Dear sandbox users,
The key goal of DE Africa is to

large scale applications and demonstrations for potential operational
We would like to offer selected

of memory (max default is 4 cores and 32 GB of memory). The existing
sandbox Terms and Conditions apply.

this multi-page form.
The offer will be available to
any DE Africa user who has completed the “Intro to Sandbox training” and has a use

DE Africa’s diversity and inclusion principles.
Users will access the DE Africa Help Desk for support.
This initial offer will be for 3

application process. By the end of the 3-month, the power user is expected
to complete a user experience survey and provide a brief report
