Title: Universities and Innovation for Inclusive Development
Date: 8 and 9 June 2015
Venue: Spier Conference Centre, Western Cape
The focus of the event will be to interrogate issues on the topic of Universities and Innovation for Inclusive Development. This topic was researchedby the UNIID-Africa project and funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The research seeks to address the limited attention paid to how African universities contribute to innovation for inclusive development, specifically, to innovation activities that provide livelihoods to the excluded and disadvantaged. The project builds a stronger African empirical research base through collaboration among African universities and public research institutes. Implications of the research findings will be interrogated and issues for consideration for the leadership of member universities will be explored.
In partnership with the HSRC.
