Résumé de la présentation
The Indian frugal innovation landscape is largely represented by jugaad, grassroots and informal sector innovative activities. A diverse set of values and motivations, a thrust on experiential knowledge, and an emphasis on ‘what works’ in the actual environment (as opposed to ‘what ought to work’) seem to guide such innovative activities. In this talk, I present some of the central thematics of research on frugal innovations in this part of the world, the key challenges such research faces, and the main lessons from the Indian experience. Mainly, the implications of low scalability, incrementality and context specificity of these innovations will be taken up for further discussion. In light of the ‘pandemic-enforced’ appreciation for low cost, fast, innovative solutions across countries, the talk aims to motivate a discussion on regulatory mechanisms and support systems conducive to the emergence and sustenance of such innovations.
