A project from DEGRP’s innovation research stream have made it into UKCDS’ top 20 most impressive examples of UK research contributing to global development with their case study on health, innovation and the private sector for inclusive African development.

The study – which examined the identification of new policies for supporting local growth and allowing local policy-makers to promote innovation – was generated as part of the project Industrial productivity, health sector performance and policy synergies for inclusive growth, led by Maureen Mackintosh and other academics from the Open University.

Submitted to the Research Excellence Framework in 2014, it has since been selected from over 6,000 others for its demonstration of the role played by UK research on the global stage, and can now be found in the form of an impact story on the UKCDS website.
