Stewarding Technology for Inclusive Innovation: A Canada/Sri Lanka Research Partnership
While access to digital communications technology is expanding to all reaches of society, many community groups and organizations struggle to incorporate new technology into their activities. Drawing from the perspective of 'inclusive innovation' this presentation will describe an approach for creating and supporting new knowledge mobilization practices within and across agricultural communities of practice in Sri Lanka. The approach is being introduced as part of a SSHRC Partnership Development Grant with the University of Alberta, University of Guelph, LIRNEasia, and Wayamba University of Sri Lanka.
