Divides and rules: the impact of new wave technologies on learning and innovation in the South
AbstractAccess to knowledge and the opportunities and capacities needed to innovate are now key to competitiveness in a broad range of 'traditional' industries. With the emergence of 'new wave technologies', such as biotechnology, that are science based, research and patent intensive, strengthening the knowledge base and linking it to users is all the more critical. New international rules do not make this task any easier and for most developing countries technological divides and knowledge gaps have emerged in rapid succession as they struggle to deal with the challenges to which new wave technologies are giving rise. To avoid further exclusion, high priority must be given to the indigenisation of learning and innovation processes in the South. Copyright © 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
