Special Issue on Science and Innovation in Africa: New Strategies for Economic Growth

International Journal of Technology and Globalisation (IJTG)

Volume 2 - Issue 3/4 - 2006

International Journal of Technology and Globalisation 2(3/4) 2006 is a special issue: Science and innovation in Africa: new strategies for economic growth, edited by Prof Calestous Juma, elected a Fellow of the Royal Society last year.

The papers are revised versions of chapters that were first published by The Smith Institute in a volume entitled, Going for Growth: Science, Technology and Innovation in Africa. [The original essays can be downloaded.]
The papers underscore the role of science, technology and innovation in development in general, and in international cooperation in particular. They signal the growing interest in making the transition from short-term, relief-based activities to long-term development, based on building competence at all levels of science.
