2020 AfriLabs Hubs Learning Week Series 2

The AfriLabs Hubs Learning week is a series of virtual capacity building workshops that brings together our community of hub managers and staff from across Africa to engage with each other on the skills needed to operate and accelerate their hubs.


The AfriLabs Hubs Learning Week series 2 is a follow-up of Series 1 and is facilitated by existing and experienced hub managers within the African ecosystem and is focused largely on practical case studies and strategies that work.

During the learning week, hubs have the opportunity to apply for meet up grants. Successful applicants will win a 2,000 € grant to host a virtual meetup on the SDGs and the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Learning Week Series 2 is part of the AfriLabs Capacity Building Programme (ACBP) and is supported by the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) support through the Digital Africa seed fund.

The second series will be held from Monday, 7th September to Friday, 11th September, 2020.

Interesting to note is the fact that on Tuesday the 8th of September and Thursday the 10th of September 2020, we would be having the French sessions at 1:00 pm GMT.
