Africa LICS webinar: Innovation under the radar - African experience and the way forward

AfricaLics (African Network for Economics of Learning, Innovation, and Competence Building Systems) partnered with the Technology and Management Centre for Development (TMCD), Department of International Development University of Oxford, to inspire a conversation on the “innovation under the radar: experiences from Africa” towards identification of gaps in theory and policy for Africa.

Prof. Xiaolan Fu shared her thoughts about this topic, in line with the global dynamics that are shaping the African innovation diffusion pathways. She drew on case studies from the Book. Discussants who have been drawn based on their expertise in this field also added their voice to the discussion, thereby setting the pace for a wider discussion during the webinar.

The webinar culminated into launching of the Book that has been lauded as “offering important insights for scholars studying innovation and development; and original ideas for policy makers in charge of preparing Africa for the digital future” by Prof. Bengt Ake Lundvall.
