The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) takes pleasure in inviting you to the launch of its report titled: The Emergence of Systems of Innovation in South(ern) Africa: Long Histories and Contemporary Debates. The launch will be part of the side events programme for the 2016 National Science Forum.
The question addressed in this study is the existence, nature and the evolution of systems of innovation in science and technology-based economies in Southern Africa. The study critically re-evaluates industrial, technological and innovation processes as well as the complexities which arise because of the interdependencies and embedded nature of these sectors within the economy.
The book is organised in two sections, the first discussing the chronological history of innovation while the second addresses several critical aspects of the post-apartheid national system of innovation.
