Description
  • Abstract

    Description: 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?

    Abstract: 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) in terms of which DST has contracted the HSRC to implement IID Seminars and GCPWs for a three-year period from 2015/16 to 2017/18. 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. Their objectives are: To disseminate scientific research findings and transmit a body of new knowledge (through an interactive process of critical dialogue and collegial critique); To provide an arena for the dissemination of knowledge, evidence, and data on the IID theme; To discuss and debate, including through comparative perspectives, policy measures and interventions in the field of IID; To reinforce the visibility of IID research and policy implications, and; To enhance wider public understanding of the IID concept including the value and status of both individual and team-based research. The GCPWs are meant to serve as a forum for learning about cutting-edge research in the social sciences and humanities and to help identify new directions for research agendas that are pertinent to the Social Dynamics in Development Grand Challenge (HSDD GC) of the Department of Science and Technology (DST).
