Information about the project
lab of tomorrow
Germany makes use of the Lab of Tomorrow to bring together private sector stakeholders and others to identify solutions to development challenges. The lab uses unique buildings and spaces to bring participants together to workshop potential business models to address challenges. GIZ, which implements the lab, identifies challenges, but leaves it up to private sector partners to identify the solutions. Solutions are then backed up with financial and technical assistance commitments by GIZ for further development.
