Innovation Week Opening Ceremony

The opening of Innovation Week, hosted by COSTECH and HDIF, is a moment to celebrate the work of innovators and those in the Innovation Ecosystem. This year we will be celebrating the fifth annual Innovation Week, and presenting the report recently launched by HDIF 'Investing in Social Innovation' which looks back at the last five years of HDIF's work supporting the innovation ecosystem (hard copies of the report will also be made available).  The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion looking towards the next five years of the innovation ecosystem in Tanzania. The panel will be composed of government, academics, hub representatives, development partners and the private sector. 

Innovation Week will be officially opened by a senior representative from the Government of Tanzania. 

You can read the soft copy of the report 'Investing in Social Innovation' here.
