Who is SAIRA?
Connecting Knowledge with Opportunity, for good
Why is SAIRA Unique?
Global challenges are nearly impossible to tackle when established experts and upstart innovators work in silos. If research and technology organizations, governments, NGOs, and the private sector could collaborate on these challenges more easily, lasting solutions would certainly come more quickly. SAIRA aims to make that happen. We provide the first open innovation platform that strives to transfer technologies and implement innovative solutions for sustainable development through collaborative projects. SAIRA’s Challenges bridge the geographical and administrative gap between market needs, local challenges, innovative business ideas, and expertise in research and development by offering easily accessible matchmaking tools.
