About Innovation Week

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. In 2017, HDIF collaborated with 16 partners to curate a series of interactive events for over 1,000 people in Dar es Salaam. This year we have over 24 partners who are organizing events that are exploring innovation in research, development, entrepreneurship, technology and design across three sectors: health, education, and water/sanitation/hygiene. We invite you to participate with us from Monday, 21st May to Saturday, 26th May 2018.
