Innovation, Transformation and Resilience for Sustainable Development



Why and how have some developing countries been able to set in motion catching-up processes while others remain stagnant or even fall behind?

The course examines key aspects of these processes and explores the role of innovation in transforming the economy and increasing social resilience over the long-term process of sustainable development in a low-income country context. Importantly, the course participants will apply historical and theoretical understanding to their current contexts across Africa, identifying policies and public investments that combine support for both innovation and sustainable development.

The course is taught by experts at the Department of Economic History at the Lund University School of Economics and Management, who are looking forward not only to teaching but also to exchange with course participants, innovation sector experts in African countries.
