The Falling Walls Lab is a challenging interdisciplinary platform that allows innovators in various fields to present their breakthroughs, that is research work, business ideas and initiatives in 3 minutes. The first Walls Lab in East Africa took place on September 13, 2016 at the Goethe-Institute Nairobi.Lorna Mutegi, @iLabAfrica Project Coordinator had the pleasure of presenting her research work whose topic was‘BREAKING THE WALL OF IT Security Service Commoditization’ among 12 other participants from Uganda, Tanzania, and Kenya.
Lorna is grateful for the opportunity to take part in the first Falling Walls Lab in East Africa. It was a unique nerve-cracking experience as it builds the art of ‘3-minutes Idea Definition’ to a top class jury from academia, research institutions and business and to an audience of industry experts.
It was great to connect with other young innovators, researchers, excellent scientists, and professionals from a diverse range of fields. Lorna encourages more researchers in academia, staff and students alike, to apply for the next call of the Falling Walls Lab.
