Brief introduction of the Kappa and its structure
The primary goal of this study is to understand how university innovation policies and practices have evolved in three African countries:
Mozambique, Kenya, and Uganda. In this thesis, I present a review of the literature on higher education and innovation in Africa, as well as the study objectives and research questions, key concepts, methods, and sources for the first two papers related to the Mozambican case study, a summary of the first two papers, and the full papers.
