Programme:  

The purpose of AfriAlliance Innovation Bridge Events (IBE) is to 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. The topic of the Innovation Bridge Events follows from the overarching theme of the AfriAlliance project which is to foster social innovation related to climate change and water. Social Innovation in AfriAlliance means tackling societal, water-related challenges arising from Climate Change by combining the technological & non-technological dimensions of innovation. Utilising social innovation and its four dimensions as the backbone of the Innovation Bridge Event (IBE) session, the 2nd IBE will gather diverse stakeholders across all levels of government and the sectors of climate, water, environment, sustainability and innovation, inter alia.
