Plenary on Revisiting Putting Africa First: the Making African Innovation Systems

  • Written by  Boitumelo Bodibe

Presentation by Prof Mammo Muchie at the 8th Globelics Conference.

"We have shifted from science to research. Science is certainity; Research is uncertainity. Science  is supposed to be cold, straight and detached; research is warm, involving and risky. Science puts an end to the vagaries of human disputes; Research fuels controversies by more controversies." …Bruno Latour. We need to build research capacity systematically in Africa.. Africa actually fits well with Bruno Latour’s idea of research-warm, involving and risky!
