Innovation Governance Knowledge Exchange

Global Alliance Africa is a six-year project designed to strengthen and scale local innovation and business environments in Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa. Innovation Governance Knowledge Exchange is one of four interventions for this programme.

Heavily bureaucratic, or ineffective governance structures inhibiting a quick response under changing circumstances are often a barrier to innovation progress. If innovation governance systems are unable to respond and adapt quickly, they are under-prepared to facilitate the kinds of game-changing innovations needed for rapid development impact.

Our Innovation Governance Knowledge Exchange intervention aims to ensure a strategic, coherent and demand-driven approach to linking African innovation policy stakeholders with their international peers to share best practice and generate insights on how to best overcome these barriers.
