NEF Roundtables (GUIRRs)

Government-University-Industry Research Roundtables

To connect universities and government policy to industry, the NEF platform hosts Government-University-Industry Research Roundtables (GUIRRs) that bring together leaders from each sector to tackle common challenges and accelerate collaboration. Held every quarter across Africa, GUIRRs tackle specific themes, for example strengthening Africa’s innovation ecosystem, looking at both policy and practice and taking into consideration the opinions of young researchers. The first GUIRR will be held in the first quarter of 2017.
