Lab Network

There are research and development innovation Labs in Uganda,
Kosovo and Zimbabwe, with plans in the near future for another
nine countries to join the network.

These hubs for innovation and collaboration will be able to
connect to other innovation networks and incubators and share
their processes and outputs.
This type of south-south collaboration creates space &
                                            opportunity for sustainable social innovation
