Abstract: This research examines the potential of, and characteristics of collaboration between developing countries, in the field of genomics and health biotechnology, focusing on both research and entrepreneurial collaboration, in order to gain a better understanding of factors that cultivate and influence South-South collaboration. Key findings indicate that entrepreneurial collaborations seem to be more prevalent, showing that access to new markets is an important biotech driver. Project activities, outputs and outcomes are reviewed. Survey results varied from country to country; to visually represent the geographical spread of collaborative linkages, findings were mapped.
