The Frontier Technology Livestreaming programme, which is implemented by IMC, helps DFID to apply frontier tech to some of the biggest challenges in international development.
We are already testing the use of 3D printers to overcome supply chain challenges in Nepal, delivering sustainable water to rural communities in Tanzania using the Internet of things, and experimenting with alternative internet connectivity in Mozambique. These are just 3 of the 18 pilots we are working on and we have just been awarded the UK Civil Service Award for Innovation.
We are looking for an Innovation Manager to join the team to help coach and support the projects to work quickly from paper to prototype to pilot, capture and communicate what they learn and connect them to what they need.
