The Gauteng Innovation Strategy begins by explicitly recognising the importance which must be attached to socially-oriented innovations. At the same time, recognising that communities themselves are the source of innovation, as well as individuals, will provide direction as to how, why and where we should be supporting innovation. It will also help in understanding the benefits that can arise from innovation. Although many of the important factors such as tax regimes and tertiary education system lie within the scope of national government departments, Gauteng Department of Economic Development and its agencies will be creating and facilitating interactions between universities and private sector organisations as well as establish eco-system based approaches and relationships with national government and its agencies to ensure effective implementation of the strategy. The purpose of the strategy is to ensure that Gauteng becomes a knowledge-driven economy.
