The second round of the Innovation Prize for Africa (IPA), which aims to reward innovation across Africa in key sectors of interest, was launched today at a press conference organized by the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA).
Addressing journalists, Ms. Aida Opoku-Mensah, Director of the ICT, Science and Technology Division (ISTD) of the ECA said,“Our focus is the future we innovate. It’s based on the core belief that the best way to predict the future is to create it. It is a call to action across Africa. To develop our own solutions, bring together our best minds and all our resources.” She added “It’s a global invitation to link arms and use our potential, create efficiencies, and commercialize the very best ideas. This is the future Africa deserves”.
