In August 2011 the Globelics Secretariat was formed at Aalborg University with the support of the Swedish Development Agency (SIDA). BengtÅke Lundvall serves as the General Secretary while Björn Johnson, Birgitte Gregersen, Rasmus Lema and Allan Dahl Andersen are part-time employed in the Secretariat. The administrative coordination is taken care of by Dorte Baymler and Gro Stengaard Villumsen. In the application for the grant from SIDA it was promised that the Secretariat would take responsibility for the production of an Annual Globelics Thematic Report as a follow up to the annual conference. The report was to cover a theme that would be highly relevant for developing countries and discussed in the Globelics community. This present Thematic Report has been edited by Björn Johnson and Allan Dahl Andersen of the Globelics Secretariat. Judith Sutz, Bengt-Åke Lundvall, Leticia Antunes Nogueira, and Tadeu Fernando Nogueira also contributed to the report. Furthermore, comments on an earlier version of the report were received from Susan Cozzens, Adrian Ely, Rasigan Maharajh and Rodrigo Arocena. We thank all contributors and commentators for their support. The Thematic Report is intended to inspire future Globelics research as well as practical action. It reflects the content of the many papers on inclusive development that have been presented at Globelics conferences and input from Globelics experts on the theme. But the secretariat takes final responsibility for the production and content of the report. It should be underlined that the report is not intended to give detailed and specific advice to donor and development organisations about how to conduct development aid and how to design development strategies. The intention is, more modestly, to give practitioners insights into the scholarly discussion about inclusive development by referring to relations between inclusion and innovation. If this inspires more thoughtful and adequate practical action, the report will have served its purpose.
