Session Abstract

This roundtable session examines various policy perspectives on frugal innovation, bringing together panelists from different stakeholder groups. Now that frugal innovation is starting to become recognized by donor agencies, NGOs and social entrepreneurs as a potentially useful vehicle to stimulate progressive change, social justice and local development, this panel will offer a first opportunity for various stakeholder representatives to share their emerging views on the intervention logics around frugal innovation. It will consist of an open discussion among the panelists and the audience, facilitated by Greetje Schouten and Peter Knorringa.
