By Federico Caprotti, University of Exeter
It was great to see Hendrik Schloemann and Alex Densmore from Zonke Energy, and Federico Caprotti from the University of Exeter, presenting and fielding questions at a virtual brokerage event - a webinar held on Zoom - yesterday as part of the InnovateUK KTN Energy Catalyst Round 8 webinar (the full schedule can be found here). Although the webinar was just 45 minutes, we covered a lot of ground and fielded numerous interesting questions about partnership and also about the details of the project, from wellbeing assessments to working with partners on a project such as this.
We'll post the slides in our next post, but it was great to see 175 people registered for the webinar, which is evidence of great interest in innovative technologies in informal settlement contexts. It's also great to see the interest from SMEs wanting to work in South Africa and with South African partners.
