Funding: Wellcome Trust (coordinated by RAND Europe)

July 1 2010 – January 31 2014

This project brought together a series of commissioned pieces of work with on-going academic study of what it means to build scientific capacity in Africa, and the implications of this for innovation and health goals set by governments, funders, and research institutes. Working in partnership with the African Centre for Technology Studies in Kenya, Innogen developed training materials for policymakers to support science, technology, and innovation activity generally, and specifically in relation to improving public health.
