Assessing ongoing South-South technological collaboration: Examples and political initiatives

Building further on the trends analysed in chapter II, this chapter assesses ongoing South-South technological collaboration based on several examples. Such collaboration can be broadly divided into the following three categories: public-sector-based, private-sector-based and public- private partnerships (PPP). The latter often consist of hybrid forms of private and public sector engagement. As this chapter shows, depending on the partners involved, the motives for collaboration may vary, ranging from simple scientific cooperation to more sophisticated forms of technology and innovation capacity-building involving technology transfer. With regard to sectors, most cases involve collaboration in health, agriculture and RETs, though there are also examples in manufacturing and infrastructure.
