The elements are related to innovation creation, absorption, transfer and adaptation being either strong or weak with boundaries that range spatially from local to city, community, region, national and global levels. Innovation systems at national or sectoral level are influenced by conceptual frame and ideas, policy setting, context and environment, institutions, networks, actors, knowledge and incentives.

Franco Malerba considers sectoral systems to be based on knowledge and technologies, actors, networks, and institutions. The complexity and dynamics of innovation at the sectoral level in the African context are not researched fully yet. This book i
