The Innovation for Inclusive Development (IID) seminar series is one of the instruments designed to inform and influence the uptake of demonstrated innovation and technologies by other sector departments. This proceedings report is a product of the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI) in partnership with the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf) on the IID seminar series. The objective of the IID learning interventions is to use knowledge, evidence and learning to inform, influence and demonstrate how innovative technology solutions may be used to achieve inclusive development, improve the capacity of the state to deliver and improve access to basic services, and thereby advance local economic development. Twelve (12) IID seminars have been undertaken thus far, however, the integration of these technologies by various government departments in their policies and programmers is poorly understood. It was on this basis that the DSI and ASSAf commissioned Quantitative Evidence Research to conduct a policy research study to ascertain to what extent are government departments responsive to STI and open to innovation uptake.
