STI Hubs

YADSTI seeks to empower youth in science, technology and innovation by providing the knowledge, skills, resources, and networks required to successfully enhance knowledge sharing and enterprise development. To achieve this, YADSTI is setting up a network of STI hubs linking seven thematic areas critical to Kenya’s development. These Hubs constitute both physical and virtual spaces in which youth engage with one another, faculty advisors, and professional mentors in structured skill-building, project design and implementation, and knowledge sharing. The network is meant to catalyze linkages between industry and academia.
