CoLAB project


IRD, MakeSense and Bond’innov, with the support of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, joined forces to create CoLAB, the first multi-actor collaboration laboratory for responsible innovation. Initiated in 2017, this project involved more than 500 participants (researchers, NGOs, social entrepreneurs, public institutions, etc.) based on collective intelligence workshops and the joint construction of projects on Food Safety in Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire or Senegal.

Five innovative multi-actor projects on this topic were supported. In 2019, the objective of the programme is to explore other territories and other issues.
