Authors: Heeks, R. et alii. 
Publication date: 2013

There is increasing policy, practice and academic interest in “inclusive innovation”. Based on a three-country interview study with 37 policy-makers, strategists, private sector and NGO sector representatives – and founded on a review of existing literature on inclusive innovation – this paper reports findings about research priorities in inclusive innovation. 

Respondents identified a set of eleven priority research topics, which are categorised as stakeholder-, systemic- or process-oriented. These priorities provide evidence-based guidance for future research on inclusive innovation.
