We use a case study approach to examine whether new knowledge and technological capabilities can be acquired by a set of informal firms operating in the agricultural subsistence sector in Tanzania as a result of interaction with the College of Engineering and Technology at the University of Dar es Salaam.

Technological capabilities have been improved but also been acquired; though at the basic level.
