SEED Annual Symposium 2024

Hosted by JKUAT SEED Center, 26th - 30th August 2024

The SEED Annual Symposium is a pivotal international event that offers a supportive platform for our global community of researchers. Held with the aim of fostering the exchange of innovative ideas at the intersection of sustainable entrepreneurship and sustainable energies, it unites international scholars to share their insights and discoveries. This symposium serves as a vital catalyst for advancing knowledge and driving impactful change on a global scale.

In anticipation of our upcoming 2024 symposium, we're excited to announce that it will take place in Nairobi, Kenya, nestled within the heart of Silicon Savannah. Nairobi's thriving tech ecosystem and recent developments in the field of mini-grids and sustainable energies make it a perfect host. As an emerging hub for entrepreneurial growth and innovation, Nairobi is at the forefront of pioneering solutions, aligning perfectly with the symposium's goals. We look forward to a dynamic exchange of ideas in this vibrant city, where entrepreneurial spirit and sustainable energy solutions are shaping a brighter future.

The symposium are planned to structured into three distinct tracks, emphasizing sustainable energies, entrepreneurship, and an interdisciplinary approach. Looking ahead, exciting plans are in place for the next year's symposium, with the introduction of proceedings scheduled for publication in May/June 2024. This forward-thinking approach underscores the commitment to fostering a diverse and enriching academic environment, aligning seamlessly with the SEED Center's mission of advancing impactful research at the intersection of sustainable energies and entrepreneurship.
