Global Innovation Gathering

The Global Innovation Gathering brings together innovation hub managers, makers, hackers and entrepreneurs from across the world. Global Innovation Gathering is taking place for the second time at re:publica 2014 and is being enabled by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). This year, apart from our main GIG partners the AfriLabs network, we are also bringing in members from the AfricaHacktrip, the Founderbus, AfriMakers, iceBauhaus and Impact Hub. If you are interested in learning about global digital innovation, maker cultures, hackspaces, technology and start-up scenes in Africa, Asia, the MENA region and Latin America, visit us at the GIG MakerSpace, the GIG Lounge or come and see our talks on Stage 6 on the last day of re:publica.
