Every year, the European Development Days (EDDs) attract thousands of participants from all over the world that come together to share learning and best practices and innovate. Under the 2019 theme “Addressing inequalities: building a world which leaves no one behind”, IMC will host a stand for staff to share their learning from delivering ground-breaking innovation programmes across Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.

IMC’s consultants will engage participants to generate discussions and new ideas on how to leverage technology to solve intractable issues around access to clean energy, water and sanitation, health, mobility and climate change adaptation.

IMC Managing Director Gavin English says: ‘We are passionate about looking for new ways to address inequalities gaps. As innovators in development, we harness the latest approaches and technologies in many of our programmes. At the EDDs, we want to co-create with participants a blueprint for using innovation in development which we are calling ‘Connected Impact’. Come and join us in the conversation in the Global Village!”

Our ‘Connected Impact’ stand is number 31, you can view it on the event’s map here. Below you can find our stand schedule for 18 June, during these time-frames you will have the opportunity to meet our consultants and learn more about specific topics and programmes.
