2nd AfriAlliance Innovation Bridge Event
The 2nd AfriAlliance Innovation Bridge Event in Cape Town is focused on fostering social innovation related to climate change and water in Africa.
This interactive, half-day event will serve as a matching platform for universities, science councils and companies in water and Climate Change with potential collaborators, funders and investors to facilitate commercialisation, awareness and better uptake of their innovations. Activities will inlude innovation demonstration, one-on-one meeting opportunities, plenary discussions and policy dialogues and address the different dimensions of social innovation (technology, capacity development, governance structures and business roadmap).
The 2nd AfriAlliance IBE will be part of the African Utility Week.
