‘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.

Science for Technology for Development

The Commonwealth Science Council (CSC) was established in 1975 with the aim of increasing the capabilities of the individual Commonwealth nations to use science and technology for economic, social and environmental development. Over the years its functions have evolved from those of pure liaison to supporting collaborative programmes on specific transfers of technologies that, though they may freely exist, have not been adequately applied to development.
