Knowledge Transfer Manager ‑ Global Alliance Africa, South Africa

Alana Kruger

I work as a knowledge transfer manager in South Africa as part of the Global Alliance Africa project, providing in-country support to solve social, environmental, and economic issues through building Global Innovation Networks, and fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange through Open Innovation Challenges.

I was one of the first graduates in Africa in innovation and business management, and have been part of innovation initiatives across many industries including agriculture, education, mining, health, space-technology, and energy. I have experience in setting up investment funds, building innovation roadmaps, entrepreneurial advisory and development, and fostering and enabling cross-border collaboration between multiple stakeholders. I am passionate about enabling Africa to reach its full potential, and believe that Innovate UK Business Connect’s interventions are a great support for South Africa to achieve socio-economic equity.

We are currently building global innovation networks focusing on solving South Africa’s energy crisis, and looking at creating sustainable economies around waste and water. Get in contact should you want more information, or want to be involved.
