  • Book contribution invitation: The World Bank Institute is publishing a new book on Innovation Policy and is looking for examples for a chapter on Inclusive Innovation. In one of the parts of the chapter, the WBI would like to talk about the potential role of universities and public research centers in serving the needs of the poor as well as the underserved communities and the reforms needed to strengthen that role (e.g. improving relevance of the curriculum for the country context, requiring that each student spends a certain time working on a project relevant for the community, conducting research on issues important for the country, etc). If you have any specific examples that you would like to share from your university, please send them along for potential inclusion in the book! (to RHawkins <at> worldbank <dot> org ).
