Abstract

This article relies on several readings related to higher education and National Innovation Systems (NIS). The main objective is to analyze the problems of higher education in Angola, and the challenges of R&D in order to have sustainable development in that country, by taking into account the changes in the patterns of economic development. The discussion comes from a comparison between the ranking of universities in the world and in Africa. Moreover, I found that it is of paramount importance to make sure that the nature of this work dictates an interdisciplinary approach because a rich body of literature was used to explain Higher Education, R&D and National Innovation System, including approaches found in economic, social sciences and humanities.
