This first Africa Innovation Summit (AIS) is a catalyst event. It is an integral part of a much broader effort to build a platform for promoting innovation in Africa. The Summit will lay the foundation for an ongoing multi stakeholder dialogue on innovation in Africa. All stakeholders, including policy makers, entrepreneurs, innovators, researchers, academics, and investors will be engaged in a collaborative effort to undertake strategic assessment, seek robust solutions and engage key actors to build a more propitious environment for innovation in the continent. An important element of this broader initiative is a scholarly research project which will showcase and analyze selected cases, undertake critical studies and propose strategies. These efforts will allow for evidence based dialogue and recommendations. For the first Summit, several case studies on innovation hubs in Africa will be undertaken. A series of scholarly research papers on how African countries can build innovation driven economies will be prepared.
