Abstract [en]

This paper provides insight into Uganda’s evolving innovation system using a framework that presents science, technology and innovation as a function of financing, governance, human capital and the strength and intensity of interactions within and across the functional spheres. With this framework, it appears universities and public research organizations are playing a major role in building Uganda’s innovation system. Public research organizations, however, should collaborate more closely with universities, and be more pragmatic in technology dissemination. It seems that in Uganda the public sector will continue to play a leading role in fostering innovation in the near and medium term as the private sector grows. An important element of the public sector support would be to have in place a merit-based system of science funding where competitive grants are awarded annually for research and innovation.
