Thursday, January 3, 2013

[CAPE TOWN] A leading Indian scientist and policymaker is calling on developing countries to adopt an “emerging paradigm” of affordable, less complex and inclusive innovation to promote development and cut poverty.

Raghunath Mashelkar, former director-general of India’s Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, and now president of the Global Research Alliance, an organisation that promotes the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), says India has good models for innovation which are reducing complexity and the cost of goods, and which are leading to social inclusion and access to economic opportunities.
