About IW 2019
Innovation Week 2019 is a week-long series of events in Dar es Salaam curated by the Human Development Innovation Fund (HDIF), COSTECH, SmartLab, DLab, BUNI, St Joseph’s University, and the Digital Opportunities Trust with support from UKAid. Event partners apply to host events and exhibitions which explore the theme Scaling and sustaining innovation for human development. Event partners are typically individuals and organizations from various sectors who volunteer to share insights on innovation in their field of expertise to audiences and collaborators from across sectors. The purpose of Innovation Week is to inspire the current and future leaders in Tanzania to take risks on new ideas, collaborate across sectors, and transform Tanzania through the scaling of innovation.
This year's theme is "Scaling and sustaining innovation for human development". Our definition of scaling and sustaining of innovations is as below;

Scaling innovation: Taking a solution that is new to Tanzania and making it available to people on a large scale, pushing it out from early adopters/pilots for main stream use. In practise this means a solution is being designed with scale in mind, thinking how is can go beyond a pilot and be expanded new users, markets, regions or countries. This could include having it adopted and rolled out by government or made widely available by the private sector or local civil society.

Sustaining innovation: Taking a solution that is new to Tanzania and making it available to people in a way that is viable for long term implementation either by working with private sector and alternative sources of financing to scale it or working with government to dedicate budget and resources for the solution and it is included in national strategies, or the solution is paid for by those who are using it and there is a commercial plan to fund the solution beyond venture or angel funds, or there is a long-term commitment by local civil society to provide the solution.

Events Guide
We receive about 100+ concepts every year. These concepts are then scored and evaluated for their inclusiveness, sectoral quad-alignment (Public, Private, Civil Society, University / Research), the concept's value to the audience, impact, organiser's capacity and organisation's contribution. In addition to having the HDIF curated events, our partner events showcase disruptive approaches, inspirational discussions, networking sessions and fun that is in the innovation ecosystem in Tanzania.

Together with event partners, we curate exhibition space in various setups during Innovation Week to showcase to a more general audience. Some of the previous concepts have included VR(Virtual reality) immersion booths, arts performances, demonstrations of a technology.
