On the 7th of October 2019, ASSEK participated in the 4th edition of the Afrilabs Annual Gathering event themed ‘Connect: Towards an Integrated Innovation Ecosystem’. The 3-day Gathering featured panel discussions, keynote addresses, multiple parallel workshops, local ecosystem tours, networking sessions, and open-floor exhibitions.

Afrilabs is the largest pan-African network of 174 technology and innovation centres across 45 African countries. ASSEK signed an MOU to establish a general framework of cooperation to facilitate collaboration between the parties.
