dc.description.abstract The overarching message of this policy brief is that Africa needs consistent, sufficient, relevant and sustainable funding for research and innovation. Innovative funding models based on new coalitions between the public, private and non-profit sectors are required to support the different stages of research, translation and innovation value chain. The policy issue tackled by this brief is funding for research and innovation. Specific policy recommendations are made for key actors. Within a wider context the paper argues that innovation is the “single most important driver of societal prosperity and is indispensable for sustainable development and economic growth.” en
