Check out the programme of the CFIA Conference!

On 7 and 8 November CFIA proudly organizes an international conference on Frugal Innovation for Sustainable Global Development. Come and join us for interesting paper presentations, discussions and a unique session called FI Put to Practice. Here, we invite all policy makers, business representatives, social entrepreneurs, designers, researchers, consultants and other innovators to challenge each other and themselves on the question: What can frugal innovation do for the SDG's? 

Check out our programme and register here!

CFIA is very proud to present inspiring speakers from all walks of academia. While Prof. Ineke Sluiter will take you back in time, Dr. Maarten van Herpen will present a business perspective and Richard van der Laken shows a designer perspective focused on refugees.  And there is much more to be inspired by. Various academic papers with case studies from Africa, Latin America, South Asia and Europe will be presented and discussed. There is plenty of networking opportunities in the wonderful setting of the historic city centre of Leiden. We look forward to meeting you in November.
