Responsible organisation
2008 (English)Conference paper, (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Zanzibar Seaweed Cluster constitutes the best practice cluster initiative within the Innovation Systems and Clusters Programme in Eastern Africa (ISCP-EA) starting its activities in early 2006 and supported by Sida/SAREC. The objective of ISCP is to stimulate, catalyze and promote innovativeness, competitiveness and growth of the local industry through cluster initiatives. The Seaweed Cluster has a remarkable history as a spin-off of research and development indicating clearly the dissemination of research results for community development. The role of the university, that is, the Institute of Marine Sciences at University of Dar es Salaam, is manifold. The integration and engagement of the local and national government are noteworthy. The development of business sector constitutes a process where not only a triple helix practice is functioning but also where social considerations for poor women and their children are taken into account. The presentation will, thus, illustrate dynamics of Triple Helix involvement, an innovative role of the university, facilitation process including mobilization, robust business development and social development, explicit gender dimensions and finally strong links to national policies.
