  • Several factors of course contribute to this but underling all this is STI
  • How do we bridge the gap between research and end users needs
  • Have to continue conducting cutting edge research to generate knew knowledge that provide solutions to our problems
    Clear shift from research oriented to innovation oriented activities – carefully think about the uptake of these technologies and therefore the PS becomes critical in this process
    Deliberate effort to identify scalable ideas at the regional level
  • Innovation systems approach where Research is not the central actor but a part of the whole system
  • Transcript

    • 2. What is the True Size of Africa?
    • 3. Africa’s Paradox! Africa is the richest continent in bio-resources BUT per capita income is the lowest! Africa has the largest arable land BUT has the lowest productivity of all the regions! • Import food $20 bn annually Africa is majorly Primary economy BUT no economy has developed purely on Primary production! Africa is aiming to industrialize BUT how to deal with environmental degradation ? Substantial research investment BUT not translating to impactful technological solutions!
