Abstract: This article aims to discuss on how universities, research institutions and research councils can take a more proactive role in promoting inclusive development within a nation and across borders. The authors argue that there is a need for regional coordination mechanism (RCM) to effectively promote cross-border science, technology and innovation initiatives that align with the national inclusive development agendas. The authros further argue for the reorganisation of the existing RCM for sustainable development agendas. Some lessons were drawn, from case studies, on the features of an effective regional coordination mechanism.
