Innovation for Inclusive Development (IID) Policy Seminars and the Government Cluster Policy Workshops (GCPWs) Series 2016-17
The Innovation for Inclusive Development (IID) Policy Seminars and the Government Cluster Policy Workshops (GCPWs) Series is a collaboration between the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC). The IID Seminars emerged out of a concern that, despite various pilots, demonstration and technology transfer initiatives, there are still challenges faced by the introduction and integration of STI-based interventions to effectively and efficiently support the achievement of inclusive development.
These challenges indicate a need for a holistic and systems level intervention that will ensure that innovation fully supports inclusive development. Such interventions would include providing guidance and strengthening the NSI to support the inclusive development agenda through appropriate mechanisms such as human capital development, financial and non-financial incentives, impact monitoring and evaluation, as well as hosting seminars. The IID Policy Seminars are such interventions.
This data set consists of the transcribed proceedings of the following five IID Seminars held between 2016 and 2017:
  • How ready is South African policy for IID
  • Information and communication technologies in basic education
  • Innovation partnerships for rural development programme
  • SASTEP innovation sanitation technology
  • Why do development projects fail?
