As the founder of Red Cientifica Peruana (RCP), established to develop the network in Peru in partnership with 43 civil society institutions, José Soriano played a key role in bringing the Internet to Peru. He was also the primary architect and advocate of a “Public Internet Kiosk” model that has democratized network access so it could better reach underserved and non-Spanish-speaking Peruvians. This model was declared by the World Bank as the most viable for developing countries. It was later adopted by El Salvador, Colombia, Uruguay, Togo and Mauritania. Read his full bio here.
