Learning Through Inter-Organizational Interactions:Public Research Institutes in the Nigerian (Bio)pharmaceutical System of Innovation
AbstractUsing field level data collected in Nigeria in 2003-2004, this paper examines the possibilities for learning through inter-organizational interactions in the country's biotechnological system of innovation, using public research institutes as an example. The paper considers inter-organizational interactions to be all forms of formal and informal linkages and contacts between various agents in the system of innovation, including firms, universities, traditional medicine practitioners, hospitals and other external agencies. Using results obtained in the survey and the experiences of other countries that have succeeded in developing biotechnological capacity, critical interactions and scope for policy interventions are discussed
