After nine months of hard work at the Creatic4Africa innovation laboratory in Spain, five young innovators from Ethiopia and Senegal presented their ICT-based innovations at a specialevent organised by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa andthe Technology Centre for ICTs on ‘Innovation in ICTs.’

Among the ideas presented were a telephone-based vehicle security system and amobile-based decision support system to improve child health care. Eskedar Nega, Programme Officer at ECAsaid: “The ideas that were presented are fantastic and now we need to focus on how to take them forward”.
