Resource Based Technology Clusters, Phase 1: A Theoretical Background to Innovation Studies

Research report, Employment and Economic Policy Research, Human Sciences Research Council, Pretoria. Prepared for the Department of Science and Technology

This paper contributed to a joint programme of the Human Sciences Research Council and Mintek to explore innovation aimed at addressing the requirements of a country’s resource industries. This know-how can then migrate laterally to other industrial uses. The resource-based technology clusters programme of the Human Sciences Research Council and Mintek proposed that this could be an important way for minerals economies to diversify, industrialise and export. Iliev reviewed international literature on innovation studies to provide context for the Resource Based Technology Cluster programme.
