Explorations of science, technology, and innovation in Africa not as the product of “technology transfer” from elsewhere but as the working of African knowledge. The open access edition of this book was made possible by generous funding from Knowledge the STI literature, Africa has often been regarded as a recipient of science, technology, and innovation rather than a maker of. South Africa adopted the first White Paper on Science and Technology in and despite good progress, the potential socio-economic benefits of STI are still not being taken full advantage of.

All journal articles featured in African Journal of Science, Technology, Innovation and Development vol 12 issue 2. the annual report on the South African Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Indicators. This publication is part of our contribution to building the monitoring, evaluation and learning capability necessary for assessing the health of the National System of Innovation (NSI).

Catalyzing health innovations. There are a number of conditions that can help spark innovation. In Africa, some key enablers include Digital Technology, Research/Scientific Capacity, Local Innovators and Innovative Financing.

Here we will review these enablers and provide some concrete examples of local African innovations with the potential. Money spent on science, technology and innovation today will produce economic growth and improved quality of life in the long term.

The importance of this is. Even though much technological activities occur outside of formal settings, a slew of innovation labs, technology hubs, and co-working spaces full of young entrepreneurs producing digital platforms have also surfaced across Africa in recent years.

The book references the economic promise of such ventures () but, notably, provides little. The third edition of the Africa Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation ("Africa STI Forum") will be held from Februaryin Cairo, Egypt.

“Sectoral Innovation Systems in Africa is the seminal research work in an era of economic transformation through innovation. It is the product of commitment and creative scholarship and it provides critical insights into different sectors across different countries in Africa.

This book will be the starting point for generating discussion and debate on building efficient sectoral innovation.
