Call for Applications into the Community Innovation Program

MUST and TEVETA, through the Community Innovation Program (CIP), are inviting community innovators and researchers to apply for an innovation fellowship to work with experienced mentors in improving their innovations.


The CIP has a primary focus on innovators from communities in Malawi who create innovations but do not have the capacity or support to advance or commercialise for economic development. The program has been created on the premise that there are many innovations in communities that lack identification and support but have potential for commercialization and up-scaling.

MUST and TEVETA are leading a joint development and implementation of community led innovation systems and functions to support local level innovative ideas and link them to the University Garage. The key strategy is establishment of Community Innovation Hubs (CIH) to be supported by District Innovation Boards. Please download the call for application here:
