Transformative Innovation Africa Hub (TIAH)

The Transformative Innovation African Hub (TIAH) is based at the Future Africa Campus, University of Pretoria, South Africa. TIAH brings together a network of Africa’s science, technology and innovation (STI) ministries and agencies, funders and organisations committed to transformative innovation for systems change, sustainable and inclusive development. This Hub aims to make use of STI in fostering long-term systems change and transforming Africa, thereby contributing to the realisation of Africa’s Agenda 2063 and achieving the SDGs.

TIAH’s programmes and activities include transdisciplinary research in STI domains, working with STI systems actors and stakeholders – researchers, policymakers, funders, investors, industry NGOs and civil society. In delivering the programmes and activities TIAH adopts the broad definition of innovation that goes beyond products and processes and includes social, grassroots, and frugal innovation.

TIAH activities focus on three core themes, which are: 1) Transformative research and knowledge co-production in a co-creative approach, 2) Policy experimentation with demonstrators and formative evaluation, and 3) Training, skills and capabilities building.
