"Innovation not only comes to life in the West, but also in lots of African households"
Interview with Professor Peter Knorringa, Scientific Director of the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Frugal Innovation in Africa
Frugal innovation is a virtually unexplored area of research with a name that is unfamiliar to most people. In 2013, scientists and friends Prof. Peter Knorringa, Prof. Cees van Beers and André Leliveld, planted the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus flag on this terrain and launched the Centre for Frugal Innovation in Africa (CFIA). Since then, the centre has earned a name for itself and built up an international network. The centre's Scientific Director, Prof. Peter Knorringa, talks about the plans for 2019-2024 of the Centre.
