Lagos Labs – Designing hardware innovations for a smart Nigeria

26 April 2016 17:00 - 1 May 2016 23:00

The Lagos Labs are a competition that invites teams of contestants to develop innovative solutions to Nigerian societal, infrastructural and environmental challenges, and provides them with educational guidance along the path to prototyping and possibly implementing their projects.

The 2016 Lagos Lab focuses on the Internet of Things (IoT), which connects billions of smart devices to the Internet and has an estimated trillion-dollar market potential.

Cities all over the world have developed data-driven IoT systems that for example have enhanced infrastructure and security, decreased traffic congestions and improved public transportation.

We want to find new, smart solutions for a Nigeria of the future and support you to realise them!

Do you want to define new solutions for addressing traffic in Lagos? Are you eager to help Nigerian famers innovate? Maybe you care about water pollution or access to clean water? Is it your goal to help Nigerian citizens be safe and healthy? Or are you a civil engineer and care about the structural health of buildings? There are plenty of challenges that need your new ideas to be redefined! Â

The 2016 Lagos Lab is the inaugural event – the first of its kind – and we’d love for you to be a part of it!
