This paper looks to consider how public sector organisations invest in innovation and support wider public-private innovation networks. Despite often looking to the private sector to understand innovation, two important areas of thought on innovation are conspicuously absent from the study of the public sector. The first is the understanding of innovation as driven by investments in intangible assets – the knowledge based assets that which are understood to be central to performance in the knowledge economy (R&D, software, design, brand equity and human or organisational capital). The second is the notion of an innovation system – the set of institutions, relationships and interactions through which innovations emerge and develop.

The link between research and policy is a complex one. Policy is framed by the discursive context in which it is made: the wider debate in which a policy is positioned effectively determines it. In order to probe this discursive context and the role of researchbased evidence in informing it, the Politics of Research-based Uptake in African Policy Debates research project investigates the role of research-based evidence in four policy debates in Africa during the period October 2010–November 2011.
