The 4th Webinar Scheduled for Wednesday 12th June 2019 from 16HR to 17HR at PAUWES Energy Hall. Name of the facilitator: Prof. Mammo Muchie Organization: DST/NRF SARChI Chair in Tshwane University of Technology Brief biography Prof Muchie founded the African Journal on Science, Technology, Innovation and Development (AJSTID) in 2008 and serves as its editor-in-chief, ever since. He has been given best institutional senior researcher of the year merit and academic excellence award. Professor Muchie’s scholarly contribution to the discipline of innovation has been: strengthening and contextualising the theoretical framework of National Innovation Systems as applied to the African context. The principles and theory of the National Innovation Systems, as it is practised in the developed and industrial economies could not be applied directly to the developing or under-developed and largely agrarian economies of the African continent. Prof. Muchie took up the mammoth task of producing an impressive body of research on the innovation systems (in whatever rudimentary forms or degrees of evolutionary state they exist) in various African countries. He taught over 400 doctoral candidates in doctoral academies across the world in the Globelics, Africalics, Cicalics, Indialics networks. He has taken major initiatives for running Doctoral and Masters Academy in various universities in Africa and all over the world. One such academy is recently organized by the Association of Common Wealth Universities. Also, he has been invited for many keynote addresses and lectures in Africa and world-wide. He is the Founder of the Africa Post-Graduate Academy that has been training masters and doctoral students drawn from different disciplinary backgrounds applying the unity of knowledge approach to upgrade quality supervision. He has published over 400 papers, book chapters, articles and given over 100 keynotes.
