About Open AIR
Open AIR is a network comprising researchers from across Africa and Canada who are interested in open innovation, collaborative initiatives, scaling, inclusion, and policy impact.
The network’s purpose is to develop a better understanding of African contexts, to create better policies and better practice.
The question that they are currently working on is:
How can open and collaborative innovation help scale the impacts of next-generation technologies
to promote gender equality, youth employment, and other aspects of inclusion?
Open AIR is conducting case studies to help answer this question through the lenses of High Tech Hubs, Informal Innovation, Indigenous Entrepreneurs, Innovation Metrics, and Laws & Policies. Analysis of the results of these studies will be used to produce reports, research publications, improved theoretical models, and policy briefs & guidelines.
Open AIR is representing Africa as consultants in our various areas of expertise and have representation at WIPO, the AU, relevant government bodies, and others, as well as in academic circles.
