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.
