The Innovation Bridge Portal was officially launched on 15 September 2017 at the Innovation Bridge Technology Showcase and Matchmaking Event, an initiative of the South African Department of Science and Technology, which took place at Gallagher Estate in Midrand.
The second Innovation Bridge (IB) event, took place in 2017 and like the inaugural 2015 event, it aimed to provide a platform to showcase the best publicly funded technology offerings from South Africa’s universities, science councils and TIA-supported companies, thereby allowing potential technology commercialisation partners, entrepreneurs and investors to access these technology offerings.
The Innovation Bridge Portal was launched at the 2017 IB event by the Minister of Science and Technology, Naledi Pandor. The portal lets you showcase, search and view available technologies, innovation opportunities, support services and facilities, as well as tools. It is an online platform that aims to accelerate connections and collaboration within the National System of Innovation and beyond and encourage greater interaction between innovators, industry and governments in support of the commercialisation of technologies.
