 Brief description of your activity focus
Higher educations role in innovation for social and economic development

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I am a chief research specialist in the Education, Science and Skills Development research programme of
the Human Sciences Research Council. Prior to joining the HSRC I was an associate professor in the
Faculty of Education at the University of the Western Cape. I have considerable research experience and
have led projects and published widely in a range of educational fields. My publications include two
books: Financial or Intellectual Imperatives: Working partnerships in higher education, industry and
innovation and Chasing credentials or mobility: Private higher education in South Africa.
My research over the past five years has focused on higher education, exploring the nature of private
provision, the issue of responsiveness to economic and social needs and the contribution to human
resources development strategies. This new research path led to a focus on higher education in relation
to the national science and technology system, research and innovation policy, national and regional
development with a specific focus on university-industry interaction. I recently completed a study of
university-industry interaction in sub-Saharan Africa, comparing conditions in South Africa, Uganda and
Nigeria, as part of an international comparative study with partners in Latin America and Asia. I am
extending this work to research university interaction with social partners more broadly, including
communities.
