HSRC Seminar: An innovation systems approach to socio-economic development for sustainability in South Africa
In the wake of the recent Millienium Development Goals (MDG’s), the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) take over. In the context of achieving these latter goals, an exposé of innovation systems approaches to growth and sustainable development are expressed. Sustainability-oriented innovation systems are a ground-breaking and novel approach to dealing with the challenges of our time, in South Africa, and globally. This requires urgently the transformation of our knowledge systems towards a sustainable direction, and concurrently developing specialized approaches to learning between government, business and academia.
