S t white paper l.jpg

S&T White Paper

The concept of the National System of Innovation (NSI) as underlying and main idea

NSI was coined to ensure that system’s activities focus beyond science and include technology development and innovation


National system of innovation l.jpg

National System of Innovation

Few decades ago “innovation” meant something closer to “invention”

Today, the focus is on how to exploit invention for socio-economic benefits

Hence, a System of Innovation as opposed to the Science System

A Science System is a necessary foundation from which to build a National System of Innovation


Enabling conditions l.jpg

Enabling Conditions

The White Paper also identified leadership, coordination and cooperation as critical factors to the development and effectiveness of NSI

The role of government was identified as having to see to it that different components of NSI are “in place, are interacted, and that there are agreed set of goals and objectives”-

How far have we progressed or succeeded?


R d strategy l.jpg

R&D strategy

NRDS rests on 3 pillars.

Innovation

Human capital development-including transformation of ‘frozen demographics’ and

Creation of an effective government STI system and infrastructure


R d strategy 2 l.jpg

R&D strategy (2)

Identified technology missions and science platforms

Science Platforms (Astronomy, African origins Platform (paleosciences), Biodiversity, Indigenous Knowledge System [IKS] and Antarctic research)

Technology Missions (Advanced Manufacturing, ICT, biotechnology, resource-based industries)

Proposed a target of 1 % expenditure on R&D of GDP
