 National Innovation Framework launching
 15th October 2018, CyberTower1 - Ebène
The National Innovation Framework (2018-2030) is the culmination of a highly consultative process involving both public and private sectors.  It also adopted an evidence-based approach using actual data pertaining to different innovation indicators and was formulated based on international best practices. 
The formulation of the National Innovation Framework (NIF) was conducted by the Ministry of Technology, Communication and Innovation jointly with the Mauritius Research Council, in consultation with various stakeholders.
The NIF culminates into 5 major strategic directions as defined in the action plan for 2018-2030:
-          Building capacity for promoting innovation,
-          Promoting regional and international collaborative mechanisms,
-          Setting up the innovation infrastructure,
-          Developing innovation incentives,
-          Setting up the institutional and governance framework to facilitate & monitor Innovation. 

The NIF will be monitored on a regular basis in order to identify gaps in the system. This constant monitoring is embedded in the Framework as the Mauritian Innovation Scoreboard. On a National Level, the Framework is well set to sustain Long-Term Growth, to create an Innovation Culture and to address the Grand Challenges faced by Mauritius.
