Abstract

This paper analyzes mechanisms that promote interaction with external actors at three universities (a general one, one with an agricultural focus and one with a health focus) in Tanzania. It does so by mapping the type of external social partners that the universities engage with, the types of relationships that exist and the perceived outcomes and benefits of the interactions as well as obstacles and challenges related to engaging in interactions. Our empirical evidence suggests that a) these universities have multiple intersecting roles in relation to innovation oriented towards inclusion and social development, b) international donors to a large extent set and shape the research agenda in Tanzania and c) students play a significant role in linking with informal stakeholders in the transfer of technologies and capability building in rural areas. Finally, conclusions for theory and policy are derived from these findings.

    When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Many thanks!
