Report on National and Regional Hub Associations Including 7 Documented Case Studies and Comparative Analysis

  • 1. Africa Makerspace Network

Description

If Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs), including makerspaces, stand the chance to be empowered as key drivers of local innovation in Africa, then they would certainly require government support as they do not exist in isolation but rather, form parts of countries on the continent. In that light, this report digs into the activities being undertaken by innovation hubs and hub networks for their development. The interesting finding in this report are beneficial as they create awareness on the policy advocacy actions in Europe, which would be beneficial when adopted in African spaces. Lastly, the report identifies the different approaches to policy advocacy actions and puts across a recommendation for a bottom-up multi-actor policy approach for hubs and hub networks in Africa.
