This paper on innovation discusses the ideal role and interaction of different actors in innovation systems and compare them with their actual role in ICT sector of Afghanistan. Modeling the innovation in Afghan ICT as a system, reveals that the linkage between actors are weak and limited. Several innovation development projects have been running inside and outside the government, but all of these projects are not designed with innovation as a system in mind. This paper is concentrating on the public universities including the opportunities, challenges, and finally recommendations.
