In a bid to develop the ICT innovation Ecosystem, Government made a strategic decision to support IT Innovation through the National ICT Initiative Support Program, NIISP. The objective of supporting IT Innovators was to build capacities of young IT professionals to develop knowledge products that can be used for both ICT Government and the Private Sector.
During the two Financial Years of implementation of the program, the Ministry has supported a number of Innovation teams to further their Innovation ideas. Some of the ideas have been processed into usable knowledge products that are in use by both Government and the Private Sector.
Based on this success, the Ministry has organized the ICT Innovation Expo at the Uganda Institute of Information and Communications Technology (UICT), Nakawa where indigenous knowledge products shall be showcased. The event will take place on Tuesday 17th/12/2019 and shall be officiated by His Excellency the President of the Republic of Uganda.
