The Scinnovent Centre is a policy and development think tank registered in Kenya as a not-for-profit organization.
Our primary concern is that despite advancements in science, technology and innovation (STI), poverty levels in Africa are increasing; environmental degradation is worsening; the ecosystem has become more fragile; sustainability has been compromised and livelihoods threatened.
So the big questions remain: why have the developments in science, technology and innovation not made any signifi cant difference in African development? Why have STI policies not translated into practical change on the ground? How come pockets of success piloted across countries have not scaled?
