Webinar: Deep Technology in Africa

Research event Recording
8 June 2020 — 1:00PM TO 2:00PM
African countries stand to benefit a great deal from potentially transformative scientific discovery and innovation in engineering - particularly from that which is ‘home-grown’.
The coronavirus pandemic and its effects on economies and livelihoods are a reminder of the urgent need to harness deep technology to uncover ways to sustainably grow inclusive economies, improve development outcomes, and protect against climate and health risks.
At this online event, speakers discuss African deep technology, the support that start-ups require and the investment landscape, as well as the transformative potential of such innovation.
