Our Work & Partnerships

CGE works directly in the UK, Ethiopia, Kenya and India. Our Cultivator projects and ventures also work in Cameroon, Colombia, Ghana, Madagascar, Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Uganda.

CGE’s UK activities are run from an Inclusive Innovation Hub in Cambridge, where the Cultivator is housed. To facilitate our collaborations with the University of Cambridge, we are partnering with the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology to deliver an Inclusive Innovation programme. We also collaborate with University College London, NIAB and the British Antarctic Survey.

To enable effective co-creation with potential end-users we have established Inclusive Innovation partnerships in Ethiopia and Kenya.

Our most established partnership is with the Bahir Dar Institute of Technology (BIT), Bahir Dar University, in Ethiopia, where a sister Inclusive Innovation Hub is being established. Research and innovation projects in Ethiopia include the setting up of a makerspace in the BIT Business Incubation and Techno-Entrepreneurship Centre, research collaborations relating to food security, water and energy, and the establishment of an Innovation Communities programme in partnership with the Ethiopian NGO JeCCDO to enable co-creation with grassroots rural communities.
