Ghana’s participation in the Transformative Innovation Policy (TIP) Africa Exploratory Hub (i.e. TIP Africa pilot) focus on e-waste management system in Ghana. The TIP Africa Hub is a policy research project under the auspices of the Transformative Innovation Policy Consortium (TIPC). TIPC is a multi-country initiative on Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) policy aimed at promoting transformation of systems and societies in ways that foster environmental sustainability and help address social challenges — including gender, inequality, and exclusion — alongside achieving economic goals. In Ghana, the TIP Africa pilot project is being implemented by CSIR – Science and Technology Policy Research Institute (STEPRI) in collaboration with Ministry of Environment Science Technology and Innovation (MESTI) and University of Ghana (UG) with technical support from Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the University of Sussex, UK.
