Workshop on “Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Policy Research”

11-13 December 2017 | Biological Sciences Building, IISc, Bengaluru

The event is supported by Department of Science Technology (DST), Government of India, organized jointly by DST – Centre for Policy Research, IISc, Bengaluru, and Nation Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), Bengaluru.

About the Workshop

Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) are now recognized as playing a significant role in advancing human, social, and economic development and meeting the aspirations of people and nations across the world. As a result, understanding STI processes and exploring ways to strengthen them is a major strand of intellectual activity, evinced by the explosion of literature on these topics in the last decade. At the same time, there are significant efforts to link this understanding to better policy-making by a range of governmental agencies (both in developed and emerging economies) and inter-governmental organizations. It is important to understand the inter-link between ‘science and public policy’; i.e., the use of scientific skills in formulating better policies (science for policy) as wee as understanding how the policies impact the science (policy for science). Department of Science and Technology (DST) recognized the importance of evidence-driven research and established DST Centers for Policy Research (CPRs) in various academic institutions across the country. These centers are engaged in targeted research in number of key areas relevant to the country, train young scholars in STI policy research, and contribute towards better STI policy making by providing inputs to DST.

The workshop intends to introduce various components, tools, methodologies and frameworks of STI policy research to young scholars working in this field, covering both; ‘science for policy’ and ‘policy for science’ related topics through series of lectures, invited talks and panel/group discussions. Also, this workshop aims to provide a deeper understanding about STI policy drafting and implementation mechanisms in India.
