we are pleased to announce that HDIF’s most inclusive innovation showcasing platform in the country, ‘The Innovation Week’ is here.This is a platform for sharing innovations that make a positive impact in human development. The event is expected to take place from May 21st – 26th 2018 carrying a theme titled “Innovation into Action“.

Over the past four years we have worked to make Innovation Week a collaborative and creative showcase of cool and exciting projects that improve the lives of Tanzanians. Last year HDIF collaborated with over 16 partners to curate a series of 18 interactive events, exploring innovation in research, development, entrepreneurship, technology and design across three sectors: health, education, and water/sanitation/hygiene. Over 1,000 people participated in Dar es Salaam.

Last year’s Innovation Week was made a success by stakeholders who took advantage of the platform to organize their own events and showcase their innovations. Innovation Week 2018 is another opportunity not to miss.


More details will be shared as the week schedule gets a clearer shape. In the meantime, do not hesitate to contact us for clarification.
