The GE Africa Innovation Centre (GE AIC) has, since its launch in June 2016, been a home for South African Industrial Innovation - with a global edge!
Providing a welcoming vibrant environment, including, the best of local design, the award-winning glass-encased building is a perfect home for collaboration and innovation.
AT THE FOREFRONT OF AFRICAN INNOVATION
Using the best innovation, practices, and methodologies, many emerging from the century-old invention organisation, the GE AIC team provides training, workshops, innovation programmes, and immersions for local partners.
Ideation, co-creation, work and learning spaces for 2 to 120 people are scattered throughout the building.
However its key objective is to enhance local innovation : The GE AIC was developed in order to catalyse and unlock opportunities for Africa’s accelerated growth and sustainable development.
To that end, we host global and local delegates - from academic to professional and catalyse realistic and sustainable solutions to challenges in our work, social, political and physical environments.
