A System Driven Approach to Research and Intellectual Property Generation

September 8, 2021 Engineering 0

Zimbabwe’s economy is shifting from one based on resources to one based on knowledge. The announcement of the Intellectual Property Rights Policy by the Government of Zimbabwe, three decades after achieving economic and political freedom, marked a watershed moment in the country’s efforts to unlock value from research inputs and realise the goal of becoming a middle-income economy. The goal is to get the most out of the money spent on research by collaborating with others. As a result, this strategy created a favourable environment for collaboration between universities, government, and industry. How can we help disadvantaged individuals earn more money by leveraging their knowledge rather than their sweat and muscle? It has been a difficult question for most Zimbabweans. Every emerging country must foster and conserve indigenous knowledge in order to thrive. Zimbabwe has improved its educational curriculum during the last three decades. On the other hand, the educational system has struggled to produce graduates capable of providing goods and services to a developing country. The government has sought to address the problem by establishing more than 10 state-owned institutions and granting licences to two additional private universities. The new academic programmes and degrees did not boost industry executives’ belief in the institutions’ ability to contribute to industrial progress, and the project did not result in the establishment of a new industry.
