My first contact with Sigma Orionis was virtual; I remotely attended a conference organised in Dakar in the context of their EuroAfrica-ICT project. Along with my AUF colleagues who were on site, I was pleasantly surprised by this company’s openmindedness and professionalism. The second contact was more personal. I met with Karine Valin in Mauritius where we discovered that most of the time, the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie and the Sigma Orionis shared mutual interests. This is not always the case: the meeting between a private company and a university or group of universities is sometimes tricky and communication can often be distorted. It is therefore the quality of the men and women in the organisations who ensure the project’s success.  For me, Sigma Orionis’ major assets are its ability to listen and its openness.
