With the blessings of the Deputy Vice Chancellor of Research, Knowledge and Exchange of the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM), who was the guest of honour, and the Principal of the College of ICT (CoICT) of UDSM, who hosted the event, the first out of a series of meetups engaging the community in the Negawatt Challenge program kicked off in the morning of September 17, 2015 at UDSM. The theme of the event was “Innovation for Transformation in the Water and Energy Sectors”.

Stakeholders of the energy and water sectors were introduced to the program, learnt insights from the Ministry of Water (MoW), the Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (EWURA), CoICT, and Team STIC - one of the teams currently accelerated through the Negawatt Challenge Dar program. Team STIC’s innovative solution for the water sector gained significant interest from the participants and the media who featured the event in the local news
