This report, part of the 'Technology for Development Series' by UNCTAD addresses partnerships in scientific and technological development involving companies from developing countries. It concludes that there has been a relatively slow development of formal partnerships involving those firms and argues the need for government strategies and policy intervention to support network initiatives. It also explores informal partnering through networks and clusters of firms as an alternative way for many businesses in developing countries to become competitive and boost their capability to the right level for graduating to formal partnerships.
