Mobilizing Local Knowledge To Improve Competitiveness Strategies

CSEA joined participants at the capacity building workshop- Strengthening Research Proposals organized by the Global Development Network (GDN) in partnership with the Trade and Competitiveness Global Practice of the World Bank Group and financed by the Competitive Industries and Innovations Program (CIIP).

The workshop which held from 30th June to 1st July 2017, in Nairobi Kenya aims to mobilize developing country researchers to produce contextualized, evidence-based research on the subject of industrial policies. This is in an effort to contribute to an understanding how governments and companies in developing countries interact to improve industrial productivity, and how these impacts can be measured.

Through rigorous documentation of existing policies, the program aims to generate locally produced, quality, empirical academic knowledge to inform debate on competitiveness strategies and to promote industrial productivity in four African countrieswith a focus on manufacturing industries.

The workshop featured various sessions which also provided a platform for participants to present their research proposals. CSEA’sAdedeji AdeniranandEhikowoicho Idokopresented a proposal titled “Mobilizing local knowledge to improve competitiveness strategies In Nigeria”.
