Abstract

This third report of the African Innovation Outlook (AIO-3) covers a period during which major developments have taken place in the African Union policy processes. In 2013, the African Union adopted the Agenda 2063 which is a 50-year vision of the aspirations of the idea of the 'Africa We Want' in 2063. The vision is buttressed on an Africa that is committed to laying a strong foundation in science, technology and innovation. The first Ten Year Implementation Plan of Agenda 2063 has programmes which are aimed at promoting science, technology and innovation, as well as the application of STI in the economic development activities of the continent.
