Kenya 10-year Innovation Masterplan



Leveraging Innovation for Economic Growth and National Prosperity

Kenya's 10-year National Innovation Masterplan attempts to address the need for a coherent vision and intentional interventions that leverage the windows of opportunity created by some of the challenges that exist within the national innovation ecosystem.

Current Context
of the Ecosystem

The Kenyan Innovation Ecosystem consists of producers, consumers, support structures, system, infrastructure, and policy framework, amongst others.
To support the necessary knowledge economy needed to achieve socio-economic developmental goals, the coordination of all these elements and actors is critical to ensure collective efforts produce the necessary innovation towards the national priority development goals.


Supporting & Catalysing the Ecosystem

There are five essential pillars that have the capacity to catalyse the Kenyan innovation ecosystem and bring about the intended innovation output to drive socio-economic development.
