Application

Are you interested in inspiring Tanzanians to take risks, explore new ideas, and collaborate across sectors?

Over the past two 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 16 partners to curate a series of 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. This year we want to get as many people involved in hosting events during the week, which will run from Monday, From Monday, 15 May to Saturday, 20 May 2017.

We invite you to lead an event at this year’s Innovation Week! Please share your ideas with us by clicking on the link below.

Deadline to apply is March 1st 2017

We have had an overwhelming response and look forward to seeing these events in action during Innovation Week.
