Science, Technology and Innovation noted, innovation and technology are needed to transform countries from reliance on the exploitation of natural resources to technological innovation as the. Modern Science and Technology and the Challenges of Third World Countries We live in a highly sophisticated world where everything is almost achievable. There would probably have been no changes between the world of today and that of three centuries ago if necessity and serendipitous discoveries had not driven men to achieve great things.
A developing country's choice of an appropriate technology from among those available for use in a particular industry is critical: alternative technological strategies that involve varying mixes of capital, labor, and social costs could have significantly different impacts not only on the industry but also on the country itself, especially one whose industrial base is restricted. This book. TWAS has identified 66 developing countries for which capacity in science and technology is significantly lagging. The list includes the 47 Least Developed Countries identified by the United Nations, plus countries selected because of their low income levels and specific needs for support in building research capacity.
Collection and management of big data may be a demanding task for developing countries, but it could also bring solutions to hunger, health and climate change. Experts from Africa, Italy and the UK will explore the issues in a TWAS roundtable at Trieste Next. "Information Society, Digital Divide, and E-Governance in Developing Countries."
