Topics covered during the presentation included NIRICT's focus and mission, some of the major accomplishments of the past year and the structure of the Community Day.¬† As the‚ÄĮthemes of 2022 attracted a lot of interest‚ÄĮand are still highly relevant, we had the same themes this year with the addition of the Sustainable ICT theme.
