This special issue consists mainly research papers presented in the Atlanta Conference in 2009 on science and innovation policy introduced by two guest editors, Sonia Gatchair and Susan Cozzens. In addition to the research papers from the conference we have added a reprint of a research paper from Charles Edquist, six research notes (including a personal profile) and two book reviews. The papers from the Atlanta conference are informed by the challenging research quest on how knowledge can be converted into innovation in low income economies in Africa and other regions of the world in order to stimulate smart economic growth. Most of the papers deal with issues related to the challenges of African development and are written by co-authors that combine both senior and emergent scholars.
