Why the Innovation Week

Kenya’s capacity to compete in the global market greatly depends on the ability of her people to innovate and apply the relevant technology for growth and development. Kenya has put innovation at the centre of its development strategy primarily through Vision 2030 as well as through legislation such as the Science, Technology and Innovation Act, which mandates that R&D spending be doubled to 2% of the GDP. Though the government and more particularly the University has put efforts into fostering innovations, a number of these innovations and inventions are not known to the public. C4DLab, the University of Nairobi’s innovation hub will host this year’s Nairobi Innovation Week, a signature event to celebrate and recognize innovations relevant to our society.
