“Corporate sector critical partnership in research development and sustained growth of the emerging economies”

  1. 1. “Corporate sector critical partnership in research development and sustained growth of the emerging economies” By: Abdul ‘Dewale Mohammed Founder & Executive President Africa Asia Scholars Global Network (AASGON) PROMOTERS OF AFRICA ASIA PACIFIC ASSOCIATION SMALL MEDIUM ENTERPRISES (AAPASME) http://aasgon.net http://aapasme.org Sias International University Zhengzhou, Henan Province, P.R. China
  2. 2. Often reviewed in line with set targets and goals, and devoid of external influence, market forces and regulations of the organised private sector, virtually all research and development institutions mandatory, initiate and adopt a Private Sector Strategy. The recent economic crisis created extensive competition in corporate sector funding for research however with many Africa and Asian countries now on rapid economic growth through the resurgence of open markets, trade and thriving enterprise this has proven to be temporary. It is widely acknowledged that the private sector is critical to drive economic growth, create jobs, develop and deliver needed goods and services and to innovate for more sustainable development solutions. It is therefore welcoming that developing countries are increasingly regarding foreign aid as a short‐term solution and as catalytic for trade and development which is necessarily driven by the private sector. Much as never as before, the private sector long term collaboration with educational institutions is highly essential for the growth of research and development as well as the economic stability of the emerging economies. •Implement & Coordinate. •Research& Review •Innovate & Build Capacity •Project & Plan Methodology Logistics MonitoringCollaborate Corporate sector critical partnership in research development and sustained growth of the emerging economies Universities are responsible for initiating viable sustainable projects and research development schemes that will attract investment and lasting partnerships with the private sector. In order to seek long term collaborative partnerships research and development centres need to liaise more effectively with investors, discuss their academic profile, and make known the potentials of the pioneered work of their relevant academic departments.

  3. 3. Source: http://blogs-images.forbes.com/…rging- economies.jpg The Emerging Economies/Market Forces – Lack of investment into research & development. which includes – loans, equity, trade and structured finance, and syndications – designed to promote worthy enterprises and encourage entrepreneurship. Boosting their large economies based on global capital, technology, and talent, the emerging markets are today, predicted to surpass the United States, United Kingdom, German, France and the economy of Italy. With their enormous wealth of natural resources and extensive labour force developing countries’ economies have a huge advantage over most developed economies. According to financial experts their GDP growth rates have outpaced those of many developed economies. However to keep up with population which is more rapid in developing countries, the world by 2020, according to IFC needs to create 600 million well paid jobs. Along with UNESCO, the UN Global Compact – a UN strategic policy initiative for business, and the UNCDF – the UN capital investment agency for the world’s 48 least developed countries, the IFC which is a member of the World Bank Group, could contribute significantly towards sustained investment relations between research institutions and businesses in the developing countries. Source: http://borgenproject.org/defining-an-emerging-market/ Promoting the first mutual funding investments in developing countries, the term “emerging markets” was about 33years ago coined at the International Finance Corporation (IFC). Primarily IFC’s mission is to increase private equity investment in emerging markets and provide a number of financial services and products
  4. 4. Renewed global partnership critical for post-2015 development agenda, says UN panel • On March 27, 2013 the UN panel of eminent persons on Post MDGs called for a partnership that enables: - a transformative people-centred development agenda beyond 2015. - a planet-sensitive development agenda which is realized through the equal partnership of all stakeholders.

  6. 6. For the attainment of sustainable development of the emerging economies, the 21st Century demands greater need for renewed partnerships between the organised private sector, the civil society and government. Sharing of good practices and each sectors’ capabilities, under transparent and proactive partnership does guarantee sustainable development by bringing forth additional expertise and resources for growth and the transformation of communities. Through educational institutions multi-national companies are known to invest millions of dollars in research and development on diverse sustainability projects which are of significant value to the investors and in most cases beneficial to the institutions and their respective local communities. However on mainstream development policy and practice the private sector still remain at a tangent.Source: UCC(private) Ltd. Renewed Partnership
  7. 7. To effectively do this it is important for the University, through the development of innovative enterprise to take account of its potentials by unlocking its endowed capital. Research and development impact long-term economic and social benefits on societies, hence the development, effectiveness and sustainability of private sector investment could increase significantly if the institutions are themselves more enterprising and innovative and can clearly demonstrate their understanding of the functions, objectives and entrepreneurship skills of the organised private sector. Source: www.unitt.jp/img/en/ipoffice/en-ipoffice1.gif To sustain the future of emerging economies distinct collaboration between the organised private sector companies and the academia, need not only to be strengthened but backed with purpose and commitment to accountability, quality, prudence, and sustainability. Private Sector Investment
  8. 8. The corporate sector is interested in diverse cross sector innovations that hover around scientific or technical value, economic and commercial viability and lasting social impact. By virtue of the core direction of corporate businesses which is profit maximisation, excellence, economic output, far reaching impact should most times reflect on the mindset of researchers.
  9. 9. A sustainability investment is an initiative, program, project or any other intervention that responds to the needs of local stakeholders, as well as to the company’s business objectives and risks. CommDev houses a selective group of public documents, tools, case studies, training opportunities, presentations and resources produced by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) partners and other organizations to guide companies in delivering shared value and enhancing benefits to local communities. With varieties of comprehensive tools the IFC planning and financial valuation model calculates a probable range for the NPV of a portfolio of sustainability investments, including both the direct value creation and the indirect value protection of investments. By highlighting the relative value of specific investments, the IFC tools will help to align the company’s core business objectives with the sustainability investments it makes.

  10. 10. Largely, the primary concerns of the private investors is quality of the project plan, project financing, assurance of quality project delivery, anticipated outcome and commercial merit from target R&D operators. R&D projects, with relevance to industry and significant potential for economic impact do attract investors and often create room for collaborative research opportunities. To promote co-funding for larger projects R&D institutions are much better placed if collaboratively aligned with business and development needs of the private sector within or outside their established base. The corporate sector and government can help in the development of highly- qualified academic researchers and the provision of world-class R&D infrastructure in developing countries.
  11. 11. For the uncovering and enabling of development of valuable new products, processes, and services, R&D helps to facilitate the development of new products. Helps in the discovery and creation of knowledge about scientific and technological subjects. Significance of R&D Emphasis on quality, industry relevance and economic impact is highly crucial when considering institutional investments in R&D. To increase private sector partnership research centres need to change the way they are being perceived by investors and develop more innovative and people centred projects that are keenly competitive.
  12. 12. Source: http://abe.tudelft.nl/article/view/39 Optimum Research Cycle & Key Components for Sustainability To develop corporate research partnerships, the institutions must be vast in the chosen industry and well aware of the socio-economic indices and capital outlay of potential corporate partners. In meeting the specific needs of clients, there is need for clarity in the scope and goals of their proposed project and the intended impact on the corporate partner.

  14. 14. With significant potential for economic impact in emerging economies R&D’s are highly relevant to industry and with adequate capital resource provision for research tools and equipment, there is need to support innovation through research-related enrichment programs focused on studies such as technology, engineering, mathematics and the applied science. To drive business skills in research innovation, academic researchers engaged with business development must and should understand business ethics in order to have or access the research talent they need to drive innovation. To successfully engage with the private sector and encourage collaboration with industry, academic researchers have to be driven by creativity and excellence in applying specialized skills and innovation that are far reaching and result oriented particularly those that proffer solutions or advance the positive transformation of science and technology. Growth of Emerging Economies
  15. 15. To create an enabling and stimulating environment that fosters collaboration R&D Corporate Awards should be given a boost in developing countries. The innovative awards will extensively promote good practices, inspire and encourage the organised private sector to collaborate more effectively and widely with academic researchers at local regional and international levels. Research and development is a key driver of innovation, competitiveness and economic performance. Increased R&D investments will strengthen academic institutions and industries. There is a need for increased investment in research and development. R&D Corporate Awards
  16. 16. With shared concerns and history, the continents of Africa Asia and the Pacific share bonds of history, culture and religion which are very deep but remain incoherent. Hence, the emergence of fortunes in the 21st Century, calls for closer collaboration between the world’s least developed countries. Africa is going to turn more and more to Asia, not because it wants to trade more with Asia but because of the change in traditional trading patterns.” - Prof. Calestous Juma, Founder African Centre for Technology Studies Author ‘The New Harvest’

  18. 18. With today’s graduates increasingly becoming unemployable and with over 2.5 billion people in developing countries living in abject poverty, creating a generation at risk of suffering decent work deficits, the upheaval and long-term impact of the youth employment can only be turned around through a collaborative private sector- government committed long term investment approach on innovative research and development projects that will create better jobs and improve the lives of millions of the impoverished.

  19. 19. To influence and promote corporate sector, government and civil society partnership in research development and sustained growth of the emerging economies, the Africa Asia Scholars Global Network (AASGON) entered into partnership with the Federal Government of Nigeria’s apex organisation for Micro Small and Medium Enterprises, SMEDAN. With the institutionalisation of Africa Asia Pacific Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (AAPASME) in November, leaders, business experts, entrepreneurs and investors from developing countries of Africa Asia and the Pacific will for the first time in history form a union to seek long-term collaboration that will inevitably involve a variety of policies and actions on business development and wealth creation, expand and enhance investment and innovative technologies. 1stROUNDTABLE AFRICAASIAPACIFIC ASSOCIATIONOFSMALLANDMEDIUMENTERPRISES AAPASME2014  UN25thAfricaIndustrializationDay 23rd –30th November2014 Abuja,Nigeria Celebration RenewedGlobalPartnership -AStrategicPostMillennium DevelopmentAgenda forGrowthandSustainableDevelopmentofEmergingCountriesofAfricaAsia-Pacific AAPASME A Framework for Corporate Sustainability
  20. 20. In order to achieve sustainable growth in developing countries, there is need for businesses looking to enhance sustainable growth, and research institutions seeking for project funding to work closely in partnership with government through established networking platform that aims at propagating proactive and positive collaboration at local, national, regional and international levels. With a strategic assessment of existing practices and collaboration, to promote the sustainability of emerging economies, it is essential that all stakeholders support the establishment of sustainable economic networking platforms such as the Africa Asia Pacific Association of Small and Medium Enterprises(AAPASME). The platform which is to foster collaboration, sustainable and inclusive growth will help create the enabling framework for the sharing of best practices, new innovations and positive engagement between the corporate firms and research centres.
