The Innovation Design Lab at NUST is a center of multi-disciplinary research applied to Namibian and African wicked problems. We pursue the transformation of a problem into a challenge, and a challenge into an opportunity. Through research, we foster a new generation of creative innovators.
The adroitness to renew, and innovate is the foundation of a thriving democratic society, spreading prosperity and well-being, rooting culture into behaviors, and enhancing access to education and health. Research, Science, Technology, and Innovation have been the most effective drivers of a flourishing transition from the few to the many. When innovating, we are not only creating new products and services, but we foster a new generation of Namibian researchers, scientists, technologists, and entrepreneurs. By doing so, we recognize and stand on the shoulders of others who have improved the world before us, while pushing the boundaries of what we know into what we don’t know. We look at science with a fresh eye, and the ingenuity of a child.
