Smart specialisation in Sub-Saharan Africa: opportunities and challenges

"Acknowledging the common agendas and related challenges in the area of innovation policy (IP) making, this introductory note attempts to prompt a reflection on prospective African-led 'smart specialisation strategies' (S3). It focuses on the relevance of an S3 policy approach in informing, challenging, and also learning, from (territorial) innovation policymaking in Sub-Saharan African countries. Indicative early roadmap steps are mentioned, anticipating on hopefully upcoming exploratory analyses/mapping across continents."

Science Areas:

The calls for a better territorial integration have prompted many initiatives in the EU and beyond the EU to support more balanced, place-based and inclusive approaches to territorial development.

This section gathers and compares international perspectives to territorial policies with a focus on innovation-led development strategies and dynamics that favours local ownership and sustainability.

The activities and contributions should also help to ultimately offer few international guidelines for a joint monitoring framework of territorial innovation policies (TIPs).
