CENTRE FOR SCIENCE AND ADVANCED GLOBAL INNOVATION TECHNOLOGIES (SAGIT) is an integrated national-technology initiative focused on seeing education institutions engage the industry to drive innovation with a global perspective that will help Zimbabwe attain world class industry standards. The equal objective is to ensure that our curriculum is and stays relevant to current and future technology trends. With Zimbabwe being a youthful economy and largely SMEs driven, it is of prime importance to have a bridging platform that actively connects the industry to the education sector’s brightest innovative minds staging a springboard for our future giant corporates and industry leaders. SAGIT’s strong local presence and international network of technology partners helps to create working synergies with global leaders in innovation technologies.

We facilitate the academia to Innovate, create and explore its technology talent by solving industry based problems.
We seek to create a very strong local presence and a global value based network of partners in innovation and technology.
Real life experiences are very instrumental in triggering curiosity and in-sighting the innovative/entrepreneurial mindset in the young generation. We have an all year events calendar covering regional and international events.
The academia has a very strong ability to abstract from the problem , conceptualise and then solve it in the conceptual domain, an expertise that is woefully lacking in the industry. They can lend the conceptualisation and generalisation skills and the industry can provide the practical reality in which the conceptualisation can be rooted
We create path breaking themes, content and activities in Science, Innovation and Technology to facilitate extensive research and analysis that unlock a perpetual stream of value that benefits both the industry and academia
Equip Africa’s future generation with the necessary tools and skills that contribute to an evolving innovative society
We have custom packages to complement the rigorous standards of the tertiary curriculum and ensure institutional staff will gain valuable experience that will transform the way they look at the world to the benefit of the young innovators.
