Supporting the Knowledge, Innovation and Development Program at FORO Nacional/Internacional, Peru

Recent policy initiatives suggest that efforts are underway to improve the traditionally limited support granted to science, technology and innovation (STI) activities in Peru. FORO Nacional/Internacional (FORO) is an independent thinktank based in Peru that specializes in research on STI policy. The project aims to strengthen FORO's capacities to do research, catalyze debate and influence STI and other social and economic policies underpinning inclusive and sustainable development for Peru. It will support a series of studies on new approaches to inclusive and sustainable development strategy, as it relates to knowledge and innovation. Special attention will be paid to activities that provide livelihoods - many in the informal sector - to the excluded and the disadvantaged. FORO will also participate in discussion of the role of knowledge and innovation in the concept and practice of development.
