Abstract: The Research Into Use (RIU) programme aims to accumulate and evaluate evidence in order to shape and share lessons on how best to enable innovation in the agricultural sector in developing country settings. The assumption which the RIU programme is based is that research promotes innovation only when it is embedded in the wider set of relationships, interactions and processes that shape ideas and put them into use. The key research objective for RIU therefore is to find out how different approaches impact on maximising the benefits of agricultural research for its potential beneficiaries. The present monograph also contributes to answering that question, as it looks at one of its approaches, namely the African Country Programmes.
