Digitalization in Africa: Impetus for Innovations and Development

Friday, October 28, 2022 at 9:00am to 6:00pm

G-08 Uris Hall 109 Tower Road

Hybrid mode / in-person at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY (USA)


The conference will focus on the digital era as an entrepreneurial transformative prototype in Africa. Other aspects of the conference will focus on the channels utilized by Africans while navigating digital instruments, developing well-thought programs and technological innovations. Although technology is easily transferred, the context of the beneficiary nation or community has to take into account optimal application. Africans are applying technology to open all possibilities and devising ways to promote the eradication of poverty. This conference will pivot on digital trajectories and projection into the future beyond the 21st century, exhibiting African innovative competence in the digital era as part of the most critical areas of a holistic organization towards thorough and more broadly social progress.
