Purpose Driven DIH | Hybrid Workshop

Purpose Driven DIH | Hybrid Workshop

A Workshop to Explore the African Innovation Ecosystem, challenges, goals and wins. How a Hub can define its purpose, activity, and process. The Commission of Science and Technology through Buni is implementing a Hub of Hubs strategy that aims to strengthen the Tanzanian Innovation Ecosystem by supporting Innovation Spaces that ultimately will ensure profitable startups. One of the ways of implementing the Hub of Hubs strategy is through the Africa-Europe Consortium (AfriConEU) which brings together European and African Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH).

As part of the consortium, Buni ~ COSTECH will host a workshop on “Purpose Driven DIH” on 12th May 2022 at Julius Nyerere Convention Centre. The workshop will seek to explore the African Innovation Ecosystem, particularly the key challenges faced and mitigations undertaken. We anticipate the workshop will also be a chance for participants to set the scene and define their activity, purpose, role, and description of their processes. The Workshop is part of the National Innovation Week, Dar-es-salaam under the theme “Innovation for Sustainable Development”.

With that, COSTECH invites you as part of Innovation spaces to participate in this important workshop.
