The Institute for Economic Research on Innovation (IERI) is based in the Faculty of Economics and Finance of the Tshwane University of Technology. IERI does policy research in the political economy of knowledge to promote sustainable economic growth, social development and political democracy.

IERI provides in-depth analysis of systems of innovation, science and technology policy and local economic development. It focuses on local, provincial and national levels within South Africa; and at the regional and continental level across Africa. Through reports, publications, seminars and workshops, IERI engages in debate about policy alternatives for economic, social and political development.

IERI is a non-profit university-based organisation. Research results are placed in the public domain, through the publication of reports, the submission of articles to both specialised and mass media, and through participation in seminars, workshops and conferences. IERI provides information and analysis of value to decision-makers and participants in science, technology and innovation policy debates, inside and outside government.
