There has been renewed vigor towards harnessing science, technology and innovation (STI) for development in Kenya. A number of policy initiatives (financial, legislative and informational) have been setup by the government in collaboration with other players in the national innovation system, to support the translation of knowledge into practical applications for social and economic use. For instance, the country’s development blue print, the Kenya Vision 2030, has been anchored on science, technology and innovation as the bedrock upon which the three pillars (economic, social and political) are erected. This is a clear demonstration of the government’s acknowledgement of the important role for STI in attaining its envisaged middle-income status by the year 2030.
