Research

Open AIR is researching knowledge governance and innovation in Africa. Our research focuses around four priority research themes:

(1) High technology hubs

(2) Informal sector innovation

(3) Indigenous and local entrepreneurs

(4)  Metrics, laws, and policies

IP and knowledge governance policy can have an enormous impact on sustainable development, and Open AIR’s goal is to reconcile the competition of business with the collaboration of colleagues to better share the benefits of innovation.
