In this Development Research Seminar, researcher Smita Srinivas will examine on economic theories of learning and innovation and the institutional context of directed investment.

Drawing on cancer care and COVID-19, Smita Srinivas will discuss several innovation and technology cases against the challenge of priorities, policy realism and decision-making.
