'Prize Digital for Development (D4D)' is an initiative of the Royal Museum of Central Africa.

This initiative is in line with the policy priorities of the Belgian development cooperation to use digitisation and (new) technologies as a lever for development. Prize D4D focuses on digital creativity and innovation in the Belgian development cooperation.

The combination of both responsibilities, 'Development Cooperation' and 'Digital Agenda', in the portfolio of Minister Alexander De Croo offers a range of unique possibilities. One of these opportunities is the Prize D4D.


Prize D4D aims to:

  • stimulate (new) stakeholders in their activities on digitisation for development in both developed and developing countries,

  • raise awareness among the general Belgian public,

  • structurally work towards linking the theme ‘Digital for Development’ to the programs of the Belgian development cooperation.
