In his lecture, entitled 'Frugal innovation by "the small and the marginal": an alternative discourse on innovation and development', Bhaduri discussed the current discourse on frugal innovations, making the point innovations made with the global North in mind do not necessarily satisfy the requirements of the global South.

He argues that what is needed is a broadening of the domain of frugal innovation research by bringing the innovative research activities in the informal economies of the global South into the radar of frugal innovation scholarship.
