Transformative Innovation Policy Consortium (TIPC) Conference
Pretoria, South Africa, 19 - 21 September 2017
The TIPC initiative aims to analyse the current world in transition and developing a new shared rationale and vision for innovation policy. The initiative seeks to engage in policy design and experimentation, training and skill formation, and will contribute to generating evidence that directly feeds into South Africa’s governance systems through evidence generated and lessons shared among participating countries. As part of this initiative, a number of workshops to develop case studies and share experiences from consortium countries have been scheduled. The major consortium workshop will be held in South Africa during 19-21 September 2017. Consortium members include: Research Council of Norway, the South African National Research Foundation, the Colombian Administrative Department of Science, Technology & Innovation (Colciencias), the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems (VINNOVA), the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation (Tekes) and the Science Policy Research Unit, University of Sussex.
