In this second webinar of the ‘Science Policy 101’ series, Aditya Kaushik walks us through the history of Science, Technology and Innovation Policies in India so far, their motivation, salient features, and significant outcomes. This was followed by a general discussion on the four policy statements.
What is Science Policy? How are Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) policies made in India? Is there an institutional mechanism for STI policymaking? Who are the actors involved in the STI policy process? How does evidence flow into this process? This webinar was the first of the 'Science Policy 101' series, in which the speakers, Chagun Basha and Aditya Kaushik attempt to answer, think-through and discuss these questions.
