Summit Introduction

Africa’s leading high level summit for education and innovation returns for its fifth year in 2015 and will take place in Kampala, under the patronage of the Government of Uganda, hosted by Hon Jessica Alupo, Minister of Education & Sports.

Innovation Africa is recognised as the leading high-level forum for education, ICT and skills development in Africa. For ministers, deputies and senior officials it is their preferred annual event for engaging with industry partners in our unique meetings-based format. Now in its 5th year, Innovation Africa, has gained the support and endorsement of officials from over 35 African countries and in 2015 we will see record numbers of officials attending with the key purpose to engage with private sector partners. There is simply no better annual summit to meet with so many ministers and officials under one roof during the course of three days.
