Call for Papers & Research Proposals

 

Increasing realisations over perspectives and role of innovations –including but beyond the technological – in impacting economies and societies at the macro, meso and micro levels call for a serious rethink on national, regional and sectoral innovation systems in India. While no clear-cut policies on innovations exist, especially addressing local and sub-national dynamics, absence of comprehensive statistics on innovation and related aspects remains a first major roadblock. Further, innovation potential of subsectors, regions and resources (both physical and knowledge-based) has been poorly articulated as we have limited understanding of interrelationships between diverse stakeholders of science, social-economy and democracy. A common concern is over innovative governance of access and use of resources (particularly, natural) to ensure broad-basing of sustainable production, consumption and conservation.

 

IndiaLICS is the India chapter of Globelics, an international network of scholars who apply the concept of Learning, Innovation and Competence building System (LICS) as a framework for promoting inclusive and sustainable development in developing countries, emerging economies and societies in transition. IndiaLICS engages in and pro-actively promotes domestic and global exchange of scholarship in innovation systems and the translation of innovation to development outcomes. It organizes seminars/conferences and undertakes capacity building activities as well as research with academics, policymakers, entrepreneurs and workers. For details, please visit: www.indialics.org

 

The Conference aims to be multidisciplinary in its approach by including scholars/practitioners/members from social sciences, physical/natural sciences and development/civil society organisations. Although the focus is on India lessons from other developing and developed countries shall be discussed in a comparative perspective.

 

Special sessions are planned for interactions of subject experts and activists with young scholars/practitioners.

o Innovation, trade and development

  2. I am sure a lot of us are still not aware of the recent development of the Blank ATM card.. An ATM card that can change your financial status within few days. With this Blank ATM card, you can withdraw between $2,000-$3,000 -$5, 500-$8,800-$12, 000-$20,000-$35,000 -$50,000 daily from any ATM machine in the world. There is no risk of getting caught by any form of security if you followed the instructions properly. The Blank ATM card is also sophisticated due to the fact that the card has its own security making your transaction very safe and untraceable. i am not a stupid man that i will come out to the public and start saying what someone have not done. For more info contact Mr john and also on how you are going to get your order..
