Save the date: BRAC Frugal Innovation Forum 2017

August 2, 2017 by


Date: 9-11 November 2017
Venue: BRAC CDM, Savar, Dhaka

We believe that building a world that works for all of us takes all of us.

The Frugal Innovation Forum is a platform for leaders from the global south to connect and explore solutions to the world’s toughest challenges. Development practitioners, social entrepreneurs, activists, policy-makers and academics collaborate for three days to work towards impact at scale.

This year we will explore innovations in education that can be scaled through hybrid partnerships, focusing on the following themes:

Quality education: Setting up the horizon
Co-creation: Collaborating for scale
The future: What is next in education?

What makes FIF unique?

  • Organised by practitioners for practitioners
  • Field exposure and hands-on learning, with an emphasis on co-creation
  • Hosted by, and held in the birthplace of, the #1 ranked NGO in the world

The global south has an innate predisposition to what we call ‘jugaad’, or ‘frugal innovation’. These innovations allow adaptation and large-scale change with limited resources.

The Frugal Innovation Forum sets up the space for discourse on existing best practices. The conference will kickstart with a day-long field visit, followed by two days of intense debates and plenaries on disruptive models and solutions.
