Over the next few months, the University of Basel Innovation office and its partners will support these entrepreneurs in the process of validating and/or scaling up their solution through building skills, facilitating the interaction with relevant stakeholders (governments, academic partners, international organizations as well as the private sector, civil society organizations, incubators etc.) and connecting them to relevant funding opportunities.
We are looking forward to helping each of these projects contributing to making innovation a reality in the African health ecosystem.
