Centre Support Officer
ENRICH in Africa (EiA) is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project and strives to connect the African and European innovation support ecosystems and focuses on directly supporting two main target groups in both continents: incubators & accelerator hubs and start-up & SME innovators.
We want to facilitate the growth of ideas and successful outcomes within this ecosystem by building a strong network of African and European incubators & accelerator Champion hubs with a foundation in the delivery of quality services to start-up & SME innovators. To this end, we will be piloting a range of capacity upgrading and networking services to incubator and accelerator hubs, as well as innovation support activities for start-up & SME innovators themselves, both aiming to provide a pipeline of activities to support both stakeholder groups in matching their needs with quality solutions. To this end, an EiA Centre will be set-up to both cover the operational support of the ongoing project activities as well as ensuring post-project legacy and sustainability.
