Project Title: Circular Plastic Economy Innovation Hub

About the Project: The project investigates how universities can drive a thriving ecosystem to support and develop waste to wealth ventures. It will evaluate how key players can combine effort to build capacity and strengthen the possibility of innovations happening in the society. Such synergies bring about technical efficiency which is an opportunity to leverage on digital transformation to leapfrog some of the most critical sectors of the circular economy in Africa. Building a culture of innovation in universities is paramount for these possibilities and a budding ecosystem provides an encouraging environment for innovation to occur. An enabling ecosystem will help create, transform, and communicate knowledge therefore improving student employability and nurturing innovations for converting waste into useful products.

Partnership: De Montfort University, Pan African University Life and Earth Sciences Institute and Co-Creation Limited (CcHub).
