We are looking for project assistants to support the launch of this area of research. Activities include carrying out scholarly literature searches, identification of scholarly communities working on related themes, and the compilation of an inventory of bottom-up examples of innovation in different sectors on the African continent. There will be regular in-person meetings with the research team.
