This project seeks to develop an understanding of knowledge systems and what works to promote science, technology and innovation in the three LMI countries (Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania). Specifically, the project will generate evidence on the setting, performance and dynamics of the knowledge systems in the countries, which will then inform what works and what doesn’t in each country’s context in the promotion of STI. The project was funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), through the East Africa Research Hub.
