Through the hubs and domains CFIA connects with academic and societal partners, which have led to a strong foundation for a global frugal innovation network. A key example has been our Water and Health consortium in East Africa, connecting academics, African entrepreneurs and three Dutch companies in the 'Water' and 'Health' Top Sectors.
CFIA aims to further strengthen, diversify and expand this network. Through our projects and engagement activities academics, we work together with students, policy makers, businesses & NGOs to increasingly incorporate frugal innovation into their daily operations and longer-term strategies.
