December 2019-September 2020
In 2020 Konnektiv conducted multi-methods analysis of the state of research and innovation in the field of Digitalisation in Africa together with Technopolis.
The analysis included a classification of topics, actors and framework conditions as well as the identification and assessment of cooperation potentials between German and African partners in the field of digitalisation in education, research and innovation. A combination of quantitative and qualitative methods allowed us to provide indications of which aspects of digitalisation are being researched in Africa, which institutions and projects are relevant in this regard and where the hotspots of African research and innovation are located in this area. The findings served to provide the BMBF with an information basis for the preparation of a competition-based funding announcement to support cooperation projects between German and African researchers and companies in the field of research and education.
