Strengthening Technological Capability: Strategy for Developing Countries

Pradosh Nath (Editor) S. Visalakshi (Editor)
Synopsis The present volume is an outcome of NISTADS – FICCI joint workshop on issues related to Industry-Research and Development (R&D) interactions. The workshop has provided a platform of interaction between researchers in Science and Technology studies and representatives of industries. Discussions revealed that Industry- R&D interaction is actually a means to strengthen technological capabilities of a country. This volume, therefore, has been re-christened to highlight the technological capability aspect of developing economies. The volume addresses the issues related to: technology transfer; human resource development; role of technology policies; institutionalization of industry – R&D interactions, etc. Contributions on experiences of South Korea and Latin American countries have been added to enrich the volume. The role of international development agencies in technological capability building adds the global dimension to the issues studied. The book would be of immense interest to the scholars of policy research, R&D organizations and industries of developing countries. The policy makers and planning bodies would find the experiences and analyses useful for decision making.
