African European Maker Innovation Ecosystem

Project description

Connecting EU and Africa innovation and start-up ecosystems

The EU-funded mAkE project promotes cooperation and strategic partnership with countries in Africa to support the strengthening of existing digital innovation hubs (DIHs) in Africa and Europe. Its overall aim is to facilitate the collaboration between EU and African DIHs to strengthen a common EU-Africa innovation and start-up ecosystem. mAkE focuses on connecting makerspaces, which are important actors in the local digital innovation ecosystems, and global collaboration networks that complement current efforts in digitisation in Europe and Africa. These are also key for local production, product innovation and development. The project will organise capacity-building activities to equip African makerspaces and their attached local SMEs and digital start-ups, and offer incubation, mentoring and matching activities to drive digital transformation.
