This paper is an introduction to a special issue that brings together a number of articles that seek to contribute to our our understanding of how the capacity to innovate can be stimulated. They both draw on and seek to contribute to a nascent research community which is focusing on innovation and competence-building systems (LICS) in Africa. This introductory article starts by setting out some of the most important topics, challenges and debates in the years ahead. It then explains the background for this special issue and shows how the articles in the volume bring the research agenda forward.
