8. Science and Innovation Cluster

Africa is a technology, learning and innovation pioneer with well documented information on how the first universities where on the African continent and how mathematics and many other innovations were birthed by Africans. This spirit of innovation and creativity is still in the DNA of Africa and needs to be brought to the fore again. The mandate of this cluster will be to work with institutions of learning and businesses across the continent to create conducive environments to nurture and cultivate science and innovation on the continent. The development of African solutions to address African problems will be a key focus with a focus on building world leading competency in the areas of Fintech, Health-tech, ICT, Space solutions and Artificial Intelligence.
