new paradigms for international s t partnerships for development
New Paradigms for International S&T Partnerships for Development
  • An understanding of the value of global partnerships and regional knowledge networks for development: they are more than just good for you.
  • A re-visiting of research excellence and good practice: adjust your expectations and circumstances.
  • A growing multidisciplinarity of research and distributed knowledge networks: the times and places.... they are changing.
  • A need to re-assess strategies of funding and governance mechanisms: lots of room for new institutional change.
  • New global rules are affecting the movement of people, knowledge and technology.
  • The emergence of enabling or transformative technologies and their impacts: pay attention to regulatory science and sustainable development.
  • The growing importance of the society-science interface is being registered globally.
some key considerations and trends
Some Key Considerations and Trends
  • Regional and global alliances growing (AMCOST, IBSA)
  • New linkages and models of partnerships will be required
  • Experiments in South – South modes
  • Emergence of foundations, prizes and philanthropy (Gates, Pfizer, IDB-Korea)
  • Role of diplomacy not to be overlooked
  • Diasporas key (Brazil, Ethiopia, China, Nigeria, Vietnam)
  • Global Health (GHRI, AMC)
  • Role of science education and outreach critical
  • Media and knowledge for development (scidev)
lessons learned
Lessons Learned
  • Good to always engage your finance and treasury officials if you want to move S-T&I
  • Need to ensure common language between development agencies and domestic research agencies
  • Ensure communications of benefits to all. Imbed S-T&I in key national priorities
  • Find some champions
