In the development of the EQuIP Toolbox a validation of concept and draft versions of the tools took place at the German Development Institute (DIE-GDI) in Bonn on September 15&16 2014. At this workshop academics and practitioners working on industrial policy were invited to comment on EQuIP. Among them Tilman Altenburg (DIE-GDI)), Raphael Kaplinsky (The Open University), Mushtaq Khan (School of Oriental and African Studies, Univ. of London), Akbar Noman (Columbia University), Robert Wade (London School of Economics), José Manuel Salazar (ILO), Annalisa Primi (OECD Development Centre). These comments were used to finalize the toolbox. Further information can be found on the DIE-GDI website.
