This month, after two years of extensive work on propelling innovation, we are half-way in our quest of delivering and strengthening innovation at the Overseas Countries and Territories. This quest is OCTA Innovation.
The objective of OCTA Innovation is ‘to enhance sustainable development through innovative solutions for economic diversification and to improve regional and global competitiveness of the OCTs’ through innovative methods, to unlock the value of the Territories’ human and natural resources and to achieve sustainable development’.
The goal is to assist OCTs to take innovative steps to improve their economic growth and promote social development. We provide demand-driven technical services and capacity building to each OCT government, support to each government in developing their innovation strategy, and support in implementing their innovation actions in different areas including grant funding of pilot projects.
