Commercialisation of Publicly Developed Goods

Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) and HarvestPlus

Reports and discussion papers

In 2018, GAIN and HarvestPlus created a partnership with the shared ambition to expand coverage of biofortified nutrient dense foods to at least 200 million consumers. The aim of this partnership is to scale up the commercialisation of biofortified foods by working with different businesses across the food system and along the food value chain. During the inception phase of the partnership, The Development Practice was commissioned to review the technology commercialization landscape for publicly developed goods in order to identify and analyse commercialisation strategies used to bring new, publicly developed technologies and products to market. Research to inform this analysis included a literature review, key informant interviews, and a comprehensive landscape analysis conducted from June-August 2019.

The results of this review informed the development of a commercialization framework that can be used by the partnership and others as an analysis tool to assess programming decisions across priority countries and value chains. Three case studies were completed using the framework to show how such an analysis works and over 15 additional case examples were studied to identify lessons learned across framework categories.
