This event will launch a new joint report on transformative innovation for international development by CSIS and the Japan International Cooperation Agency Research Institute (JICA-RI). The report examines the potential for specific approaches to lead to transformative innovation and high-yield economic growth in developing countries. One chapter of the report considers the inputs to building innovation ecosystems, including the catalytic role of fabrication laboratories in building innovation ecosystems in developing countries. Our report involves a case study on the innovation ecosystem in the Philippines, and considers Fab Lab Bohol as an innovation-enabling platform in its community.
Speakers will consider how the international development community and the private sector are supporting transformative innovation and catalyzing the building of innovation ecosystems in developing contexts, and the challenges and opportunities involved in these efforts.
This event is made possible by the JICA Research Institute’s generous support for and cooperation with the Project on Prosperity and Development.
