Innovation Labs create global interoperability. They are physical spaces that allow for collaboration among private sector, academia and civil society. The labs profiled in this guide allow UNICEF to convene dynamic, new partners around specific local issues—and, importantly, allow the solutions that are created to go to global scale. The lab in Kosovo works with technology created in Prishtina, in Kampala, and elsewhere, and adapts it to the needs of a young, determined population. The lab in Uganda connects academia from the US, Europe, and Kampala, and creates system change at a national scale. The CCORE lab in Zimbabwe takes best practices from the world of operational research and applies them to pressing programmatic issues. These are just the beginning.
