- Exhibitions commence on 6th March through to 10th March 2017.
- This year’s theme is “Innovating to Solve Pressing Local and Global Challenges.”
Speaking during the signing ceremony, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi, said that indeed UoN is proud to be associated with NMG in the NIW2017.
“Since its establishment in 2015, the Nairobi Innovation Week has become a pronounced national event that brings together partners from government, private sector, development partners and research centres with an aim of providing a platform for show-casing and encouraging innovation over and above networking and sharing knowledge,” he said.
