The First Winners of the NIRDA Open Calls

At the official launch of NIRDA 2.0 on October 11, 2018, the first winners of the NIRDA Open Calls were announced.  The main objective of the NIRDA Open Calls Program is to introduce firm-level innovations, which improve the ability and capacity of Rwandan enterprises to compete in strategic national and international markets. This will lead to increased profits, exports and the creation of decent and productive employment. In partnership with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), NIRDA’s first round of Open Calls targeted firms in the garment and banana wine value chains. Applications were submitted in July 2018 and below are the winners from each value chain.
