Promoting Inclusive Innovation in India

A chapter from the recently released book on "Unleashing India’s Innovation: Toward Sustainable and Inclusive Growth," edited by Mark A. Dutz, World Bank, 2007

Unleashing India s Innovation: Toward Sustainable and Inclusive Growth This chapter, written by Anuja Utz and Carl Dahlman, from the recently released World Bank book on "Unleashing India’s Innovation: Toward Sustainable and Inclusive Growth" (edited by Mark A. Dutz, World Bank, 2007) suggests that India needs to focus more on promoting inclusive innovation. A three-pronged strategy could make India’s innovation system better meet the needs of the economically weaker sections of Indian society:

  • Harnessing, increasing, and redirecting formal creation efforts;
  • Promoting and diffusing innovations by grassroots entrepreneurs; 
  • Helping informal enterprises better absorb existing knowledge.
