The Ideas to Impact team is excited to be both manning a stand and hosting a panel discussion or "project lab" at the EU's annual Development Days event in Brussels on June 3rd-4th (EDD15).
European Development Days provides a unique opportunity for donors, practioners and policy makers to share ideas, benchmark best practices and learn from the latest innovations that improve the impact and effectiveness of aid.
Our team from IMC Worldwide, Tremolet Consulting, GVEP International, and the Institute of Development Studies will focus discussion on initial findings and lessons learnt from our implementation of Ideas to Impact – the DFID-funded innovation prize programme.
We will debate the issues around whether and how innovation prizes can be used to find sustainable solutions for intractable problems facing low-income consumers – particularly in the areas of water and sanitation, energy access and climate change adapation.
If you're attending EDD15, drop by our stand all day Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th June to talk with us, and attend our project lab session at 10am on Wednesday 3rd to hear from our expert panel.
