We at CSF firmly believe that Sri Lanka’s post-crisis recovery and growth trajectory must necessarily be a more innovative and inclusive one. Our team has been engaged in national and international initiatives to advance technology and innovation ecosystems, and have plenty of ideas and knowledge to share. Which is why we are pleased to announce a strategic partnership with the National Innovation Agency Sri Lanka, to advance ideas and solutions to strengthen the science, technology and innovation agenda in the country. CSF signed an MoU with NIA in September 2022 to leverage our joint expertise and local and global networks, to bring new knowledge, analysis, and policy initiatives. Both CSF and NIA believe that innovation must be inclusive, sustainable, and it is central to Sri Lanka’s economic transformation, beyond recovery from the current crisis. The CSF team looks forward to working with Prof Ajith de Alwis Sachie Panawala Vindya Jayawickrama Wijesinghe and NIA team in the period ahead. The MoU signing was joined by CSF Co-founder Anushka Wijesinha and CSF Researcher Nimaya Dahanayake.
