Our Innovation Lab brings together social change software developers/innovators and journalists to develop innovative solutions leveraging on use of technology and data, to bring about transparency and accountability. Here, Journalists meet, brainstorm with innovators/software developers and jointly develop innovative solutions. These solutions seek to address the gaps in achieving effective report accountability on issues that affect people’s everyday lives.
The Innovative solutions and tools developed from the Media-Tech Hub Innovation Lab, can then used for data mining, analysis and dissemination of actionable insights to provide ready content for use by journalists, activists and social change actors. These solutions are geared towards promoting good governance, transparency and accountability in different sectors and at different levels of governance from within communities, nationally and regionally.
