dc.description.abstract Science Granting Councils (SGCs) can perform effectively as influencers of national science technology and innovation (STI) policy, and mediators of partnerships with foreign development actors through tailoring partnerships to the development of capacity at the local level. Realities, resources, and constraints at the local level call for adaptation of current and future partnerships to their local contexts. This study explores the innovation intermediaries’ landscape in sub-Saharan Africa, considering Science Granting Councils (SGCs) as key. As well, it analyzes the need for systemic change in relation to innovation intermediaries and policy influencers in developing economies. en
