The changing role of the university in inclusive innovation in South Africa: comparing the role of public research institutes

Abstract

The research project will contribute one complementary component to a broad multifaceted research agenda focused on problematising the role of the university in South Africa, and comparatively, in the SADC region. A suite of interlocking projects has been designed to map the nature of university interaction with external social partners ??? firms, government and civil society - and to study the dynamics of innovation networks, in various contextual settings.
