New Book "Policy Perspective on Innovation and Sustainable Development" | by CSIR-NISTADS, 2017

Policy Perspective on Innovation and Sustainable Development
edited by Sujit Bhattacharya, Yogesh Suman, and Tabassum Jamal, CSIR-NISTADS, New Delhi, 2017, ISBN: 9781642047400. Volume IV in India S&T Series: NISTADS Tracks in Policy Research NTPR-1.

About the Book
India has made a strong commitment for creating an innovation driven economy through novel policy initiatives/national mission programs such as Make in India, Skilling India, and Start-up India. Given the federal structure of the Indian economy, these critical programs will be successful if innovation culture permeates at the regional level. Globally regional-level authorities are increasingly involved in designing their own strategies to support and enhance innovative local dynamics and improve the performance of their regional innovation systems. National Governments are also seeking to strengthen the national innovation system through these regional systems. This volume presents a holistic view on Innovation and Sustainable development by focusing on four topics namely 'Regional Innovation System, 'Industrial and Sustainable innovation', 'Traditional Knowledge, IPR and Informal Innovation', and 'New Opportunities: Policy and perspective'. This book will be useful to provide an evidence based policy framework and plausible implementation strategy.

About CSIR-NISTADS
CSIR-National Institute of Science, Technology and Development Studies (CSIR NISTADS) is devoted to study of various aspects of interactions among science, society and state. NISTADS is the only policy research institute among the 88 laboratories under the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). NISTADS' vision is to be a globally leading institution in techno-socio-economic research to develop S&T policy and policy advocacy to aid socio-economic transformation at regional, national and global scales. Its mission is to enable Sustainable Development, act as a Think Tank, carryout Translational Research, Develop Proof of Concepts and practice Effective Outreach. The NISTADS Tracks in Policy Research Policy is an evolving dynamic entity that follows many tracks, but may not always be directly visible. Much like a charged particle, while remaining otherwise invisible, leaves its visible tracks in a cloud chamber, policy, often intangible, leaves its discernible tracts in the society. The NTSTADS Tracks in Policy Research (NTPR) series is expected to act like a chamber that captures evolution and impacts of policy on our society. The NTPR is brought out as books as well as Technical/ Research Reports based on the scope and the topicality of the subject. The NTPR is not limited to authors only from NISTADS we welcome collaborative works in the broad area of Science, Technology and Society. This first volume in NTPR, "Policy Perspective on Innovation and Sustainable Development" has emerged from the research activities undertaken by NISTADS under the theme.
