Abstract

Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) play a critical role in fostering sustainable development which encompasses the core elements of economic growth, social equity and environmental protection. STI is a Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) on its own, as per UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. SDG-9, which aims to build resilient infrastructure, promotes inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation. Specifically, SDG-Target 9.5 envisages enhancing scientific research and upgrading the technological capabilities of industrial sectors in all countries, particularly in developing countries.
