InnovationHub Africa, the organizers of the prestigious Nigeria Innovation Summit (NIS) have announced the top agenda for the event.
Now in its 8th year, the Nigeria Innovation Summit (NIS) is an annual event that brings together stakeholders from different sectors of the economy to discuss ground-breaking ideas, trends, opportunities, and numerous verticals to accelerate innovation, attain global competitiveness, and explore present innovative approaches to fixing existing problems, redundant economic playbooks, systems, and structures.
Disclosing the event’s agenda, Mr. Tony Ajah, the Programme Director of the Summit, says, “This year’s event with the theme Innovating For The Future will explore how cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT), and virtual/augmented reality can shape the future, including their potential applications across various industries such as health, agriculture, financial services, education, security, construction, renewable energy/clean-tech, and other critical sectors.”
Also speaking at the event, Grace Akinosun, Partner at Nigeria Innovation Summit said “Innovation remains a non-exhaustive topic globally. It has become a necessity to keep igniting conversations to demystify important frameworks that have proven to work in environments similar to ours. The NIS is designed to be the springboard of such insights and challenge the minds of stakeholders to begin leveraging innovation for more global competitiveness and digital acceleration.”
