Northern Cape Innovation Forum

The Northern Cape Innovation Forum (NCIF) came into existence as a result of the determination and commitment of key stakeholders who recognise the importance of innovation for bolstering social and economic development in the province. Its establishment coincides with a renewed political focus on finding novel ways to challenge the prevailing approaches and practices towards achieving the development goals of the province.
