EU Madad Innovation Lab
Youth and Digital Innovation
Looking for Participants
Are you interested in how digital innovations can help tackle challenges refugees, IDPs and host communities face in your area? Do you want to be part of a motivated team of young people and jointly develop solutions for problems that are affecting your daily lives? Are you ready to exchange ideas about digitalisation, design thinking, business canvasses and much more?
If your answer to these questions is a loud YES, we invite you to apply to the EU Madad Innovation Lab on Youth and Digital Innovation, organized by the Qudra Programme*. Over the course of 6 months, together with the local and Syrian peers you will learn about technology, digitalization, entrepreneurship, business development and networking. The Lab will start with a capacity development program on design thinking, coding, electronics, 3D printing and various social skills. There will be a co-working space and mentorship support throughout the programme. Together with your team, you will be guided to develop solutions to the challenges you jointly identified in the context of the Syrian crisis.
You will be exposed to a variety of experts in the field and will get to know and share ideas with your peers from Lebanon, Jordan and North Iraq. At the end of the process, the prototype you and your team developed, has a chance of receiving support from the EU Madad Innovation Fund.
