Stakeholders in the Philippines’ Innovation Ecosystem Share Experiences and Ways Forward after USAID STRIDE

Strong partnerships between stakeholders in science and technology innovation ecosystems stimulate knowledge creation and transfer, enabling new products and business models to catalyze economic transformation and development. Through activities like STRIDE, USAID plays a vital role in strengthening collaboration among stakeholders in the Philippines’ innovation ecosystem, thus expanding inclusive, market-driven growth in the country. USAID/Philippines commissioned its CLAimDev activity to conduct an independent evaluation of STRIDE’s final three years, which were an extension beyond that activity’s original five-year contract. CLAimDev hosted an online learning event on March 16, 2022, to disseminate its findings, and give 300 participants an opportunity to share their insights on the challenges STRIDE encountered and ways to sustain its gains. CLAimDev’s full evaluation report is now accessible in USAID’s Development Experience Clearinghouse, and is also available in a web version here.
