The Transformative Innovation Policy (TIP) Africa Exploratory Hub (TIP Africa Hub, henceforth, for short) was conducted over a 12-month period, from November 2018 to November 2019. The research, led by Dr Chux Daniels and coordinated by the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the University of Sussex; involved four countries in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA): Ghana, Kenya and Senegal, and South Africa. Alongside SPRU, the lead organisations from the four SSA countries are: the National Commission for Science, Technology and Innovation (NACOSTI), Kenya; the Science and Technology Policy Research Institute (CSIR-STEPRI), based at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Ghana; Université Cheikh Anta Diop de Dakar (UCAD), Senegal; and the National Research Foundation (NRF), South Africa. The country research teams where made up of researchers and policymakers. Funding for the research was provided by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The TIP Africa Hub research has provided useful lessons on the prospects for transformative innovation and possible pathways to the formulation, implementation, evaluation and governance of transformative innovation policies in Africa.
