The volume analyses how to make Science,
Technology and Innovation (STI) Policies relevant for
inclusive growth strategies in Africa.The base for a
transformative STI policy is to link the STI policies to
Africa’s economic transformation policies. In a first part
the general issues of introducing effective STI policies are
presented. In a second part country case studies highlight
the new approach. Cases such as Sudan and Nigeria are
analysed, as these two countries have a long history of STI
development; because of different history, size and
structure they need to move in different directions towards
a coherent STI policy for inclusive growth.
