The 2nd AfriAlliance Innovation Bridge Event will be organized on the 15th of May in Cape Town (South Africa), during the 19th edition of African Utility Week (leading conference and trade exhibition for African energy and water, this year expected to attract 9 500 people).
This interactive, half-day event will foster social innovation related to climate change and water in Africa. It will provide 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 include 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).
INBO, as AfriAlliance consortium partner, invites innovators to participate in the event.
