The idea of the African challenge ''3D Africa Maker'', where the theme of "health" was chosen as a main axis, was developed at the NETINFO center in Nabeul, in cooperation with the Rwandan programme ''Africa in Colors'', within the framework of the project ''3D Africa'', and in partnership with virtual universities and research laboratories in African countries to contribute to the success of this event.

This challenge is supported by international software developers such as Autodesk, as well as the German cooperation agency GIZ and the Tunisian Internet Agency (ATI).

The competition will be held online at 3dafricamaker.og from June 24 to 27 in the form of a boot camp, which includes a design and industry competition using 3D techniques, as well as distance learning sessions in the form of webinars and free training workshops.

The 18 members of the winning teams (3 candidates per team, one winning team per country) will receive recognized certifications in the digital technology and 3D sector.

Each team will benefit from 3 months of coaching to finalise and implement the winning project.
