dc.description Annex 3 of 9 for Case studies of the political economy of science granting councils in sub-Saharan Africa en
dc.description.abstract The case study aims to understand the political, social and economic constraints influencing the National Commission for Science and Technology (NCST) and research activities in Rwanda. The NCST is new and has not yet started commissioning research as of early 2017. Instead, the Ministry of Education (MINEDUC) coordinates research activities. MINEDUC’s Directorate of Science, Technology, and Research (DSTR) has been funding a number of initiatives, one of which is the Rwanda Innovation Endowment Fund (RIEF). The aftermath effects of the genocide in 1994 and lack of an autonomous national institution to regulate research activities are major challenges. en
