Stakeholder Consultation: Defining The Innovation Needs For A Circular Economy Ecosystem In Nigeria
A design thinking-based workshop to explore business and eco-system development opportunities across fibres, e-waste and construction
Innovate UK-KTN, a UK-based organization that supports innovation through eco-system development and knowledge transfer was interested to develop circular economy innovation networks in Nigeria. It wanted to identify the structure of existing eco-systems and the innovation needs of participants within them in the building materials, fiber and e-waste sectors and develop a roadmap to mobilize innovation.
Event Facilitation, Research
Circular Economy Innovation Partnership carried out a stakeholder mapping study to define the structure of the value chain and the types of innovation challenges that different stakeholders faced. The study offered recommendations to Innovate UK-KTN as to how the different challenges could be addressed. Together the CEIP and Innovate UK-KTN team designed and delivered a design-thinking workshop to bring stakeholders identified in the study to reach a consensus on their priorities to innovate.
