LOCATION : Virtual Event
START TIME : 4:05 pm END TIME : 5pm

Join us for a taster of the sorts of issues innovators can start to think about for the Urban Links Africa project.

Using work in South Africa as an example, this presentation will offer a brief overview of the processes our team has employed to identify spaces for market-led innovation within large, complex urban challenges in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Our team will share insights into what we have learned through our work in these cities, and provide information which should be of use to SMEs and stakeholders considering applying for the Open Call.
