Locally embedded research that addresses knowledge gaps and policy evidence gaps
ICFI Kenya is affiliated with ICFI Netherlands, an academics research centre founded in 2013 through a strategic alliance between three Dutch universities: Delft University of Technology, Leiden University and Erasmus University Rotterdam. In 2019 ICFI Kenya was born and has been doing locally embedded academic research on innovation in resource-constrained settings in healthcare, water-energy and food since. Our core strategic objective for the next years is to conduct more locally embedded research that addresses knowledge gaps and policy evidence gaps in Africa.
In our white paper we briefly introduce ICFI and our thoughts on frugal innovation and frugality in science and society. Read more about the value, challenges and opportunities surrounding frugal innovation and frugality, the existing academic streams and ideas and the next frontiers for the upcoming years.
