This event will mark the launch of Kenya Airways (KQ) Open Innovation Challenge and provide a Q&A session for participants. Global Alliance Africa are supporting KQ and inviting potential solution providers to this webinar as an opportunity to learn more about the challenge areas. Download the promotional brochure here.


Kenya Airways would like to harness the opportunities that next generational technologies (such as innovative web, app, UI, AR, VR, XR applications) provide to assist elderly, anxious, less literate and disabled travellers. These groups may experience issues at familiar airports, whose scale and complexity create anxiety, and unfamiliar airports, where access challenges or non-native languages create difficulties. Mobile phone capability is envisaged for customer accessibility, possibly alongside other platforms and devices. Kenya Airways is launching this challenge to look for cross-sectoral solutions to Airport Navigation in the Metaverse for Improved Accessibility.

Who is the Recording for?

This event is intended for solution providers from South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria or elsewhere in Africa, however applicants from the UK or RoW are also invited to apply. The session will give you the chance to learn all about the challenge area and ask any questions to both the Innovate UK KTN Open Innovation Lead and the KQ Teams that will help you understand the challenge itself, as well as eligibility, benefits and application process.
