The virtual Transfer and Technology Centres are currently under construction and will be established in each of the partner countries by October 2015.

The virtual centres serve as a virtual platform to foster the transfer of innovative know-how and experiences in the field of RWHI among academia, scientists, practitioners, policy-makers and local communities

 

What to expect from the VTTCs?

The virtual centres are expected to contribute to a better capitalisation and dissemination of innovative research and know-how. The centres are meant to act as focal points for bridging institutional, administrative and policy-making levels as well as linking science and technology actors with local businesses, NGO’s and local communities.

The final aim of the virtual centres is to contribute to achieving a greater market-oriented use of innovative research resources in sub-Saharan Africa and all over the world.

The Research and Technology-Transfer Centres for RWHI aim to inter-link local and regional research institutes, business/micro-enterprises, non-governmental and public bodies, and policy makers, and serve as central point in order:

  • To capitalize, disseminate and implement knowledge and innovations
  • To align the research activities of academic and scientific institutions to the market needs
  • To foster cooperation between S&T communities, businesses/micro-enterprises, and other private, non-governmental and public institutions
  • To provide technical/management support and consultancy services to the business, non-governmental and public sectors
  • To offer information and capacity-building activities

 The specific aims of the centres are:

  • To assist the transfer and adoption of innovative know-how and experiences and interlink relevant actors in the field of RWHI and the use of rainwater harvesting for water and food security
  • To foster the exchange of knowledge and technologies and encourage sharing een relevant stakeholders from the academia, scientists, practitioners, policy-makers and local communities
