image of Science for Technology for Development
‘One cannot expect economic or social development unless a country has some technology and innovation; There cannot be a healthy programme of applied technological research unless there is some continuing basic research in progress as well.’ - Extracts from the Report.



This is the report of an expert group of scientists established by the Commonwealth Science Council to explore ways and means of promoting an expanded programme of scientific co-operation. Their remit was to examine and identify key issues for expanding cooperative scientific and technological programmes in the Commonwealth, especially in new emerging areas with major significance for the development efforts of member countries in the next 10-20 years.

Foreword

When they met in Kuala Lumpur in August 1982, the Commonwealth Science Council decided that ‘there was no need for a major change of direction in Commonwealth Science Council's activities’, but recommended, in this perspective, ‘a change in emphasis and in the balance of activities through more attention to science for technology, especially in disadvantaged member countries’.
