Ihaba, Rwanda partner on AIS’18

The Ihaba is partnering the Government of Rwanda for the second Africa Innovation Summit (AIS II) slated for 6 through 8 June 2018 at the Kigali Convention Center in Kigali, Rwanda, reports ITRealms.

The AIS II, ITRealms gathered, will build on a very successful first Summit, to include activities before, during and after the Summit.

ITRealms reports that AIS seeks innovative and disruptive solutions for major challenges facing African countries, which include energy access, water, food insecurity, and health systems.

Director of AIS, Dr. Olugbenga Adesida, said, AIS II will be a three-day event and the program will include a set of plenary sessions on major thematic issues, over twenty facilitated workshops in focused workgroups to deepen the dialogue and to seek solutions to challenges facing African countries, as well as many side events and special programs.

He said, the summit will also include Satellite events in three to five locations within the continent, an exhibition by 50 African SMEs and institutions with scalable innovative ideas, products and/or services, and a Youth Innovation Challenge.

Adesida further said, leading up to the Summit, AIS will organize hackathons and blogs to mobilize practical popular engagement. Post-Summit, the AIS will work on a series of knowledge outputs, including policy briefs and book with case studies, as well as promote the implementation of the recommendations.
