Arusha Ecolab is the living lab for Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology (NM-AIST). It was established in 2012.
The Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science and Technology (NM-AIST) on 11th July, 2012 hosted the first Living Labs Seminar.
It was an exciting innovation session for all NM-AIST students and staff! Together we unraveled the concept of living labs. More interestingly we defined our own living labs called the Arusha Ecolab.
