UK-Africa Hub

This project was aimed at better understanding user and stakeholder needs in order to design a digital hub to enable UK expertise and innovation to be shared with innovators and SMEs in Africa. This would provide a means for UK businesses and entrepreneurs to gain insights and understanding of the opportunities emerging in the rapidly growing African technology sector. It would connect UK innovators with the local innovation ecosystem actors in Africa – who understand the needs of the market – and facilitate collaboration to build market-relevant digital solutions that will drive economic growth and help to address key challenges in Africa while unlocking new growth opportunities for UK businesses.

The project was funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) under the Design Foundations grants programmes.
