AfriAlliance Roadshow Event at WRC Symposium
Join us for the 4th AfriAlliance Roadshow Brokerage Event!
AfriAlliance seeks to foster the uptake of innovative solutions in the areas of water innovation, research, policy and capacity development in order to enhance the preparedness of Africa for future Climate Change challenges. One of the ways in which AfriAlliance tries to achieve this are the AfriAlliance Brokerage Roadshow events. These events are localised networking opportunities in various African countries and are especially set up to help SMEs find technology development opportunities: i.e. potential collaborators and market opportunities: i.e. customers for their solutions.
The topic of this AfriAlliance Roadshow event follows from the overarching theme of the Social Innovation Fact Sheet (SIFs) “ Innovation in Water reuse and potential of new water resources”. In this regard the Innovation bridge event will have a special focus on novel innovations/technologies or solutions that address water reuse (wastewater treatment or novel use of water) and new water resources (desalination, groundwater and others). The event will include technology exhibitions and demonstrations of various technologies from a wide range of organisations working in the water sector from African countries. The event will also provide a platform for the participants to discuss key issues or bottlenecks around innovation value chain and commercialisation. Equally, it will a look best practice and potential enablers for taking water innovations of water reuse or new water resources to the market.
Innovators have the opportunity to meet potential customers, collaborators and investors to discuss Africa’s water and climate vulnerabilities and ways to solve them. They can interact and share ideas with like-minded African and European innovators and change agents who are driving a new era of change in Africa and Europe.
