    In Kenya, a strategic collaboration is on track to further develop the newly launched Fahari Innovation Hub.

    As reported by Engineering News, the hub is a platform initiated by Kenya Airways as a ‘centre for strategic innovation management and will provide opportunities for collaboration, networking, learning, research and co-creation’. The new partnership with aerospace giant Boeing entails equipping the Fahari Innovation Hub with software and hardware, as well as other ‘essential needs’.

    The hub is a source of expertise, resources and services, and endeavours to unite innovators with entrepreneurs in a bid to stimulate the aviation industry, which, as a result of the pandemic, has faced considerable challenges.

    Kuljit Ghata-Aura, Boeing Middle East, Turkey and Africa president, notes that ‘we share a common objective to discover and empower new talent that will accelerate the growth of our industry’.
