The Club of Amsterdam’s first Summit for the Future, in January 2005, featured a host of innovative thinkers and doers discussing (preferred) future scenarios as our global village transforms itself into an integrated interdependent network economy following a trend away from tangible assets into a “knowledge society”. What emerged from the various presentations, seminars and discussion is an understanding of the depth of change that is occuring. These are not organizational social or technological changes, these are changes in the fundamental values on which our economic and cultural reality rests.

In this Background Paper, we review the changes that have taken place in India’s R&D environment during the last 15 years (1991-2005), and compare these changes to both the R&D environment that prevailed in India until the early 1990s and the situation in contemporary USA (which has done particularly well with respect to innovations and their commercialisation). This comparative analysis will help us in understanding India’s achievements, along with some systemic obstacles that have impeded research and innovation in the recent past and might continue to do so, if adequate measures are not taken. Finally, in this article, we also discuss our forecasts related to the growth of innovation and research, and their advanced development and commercialisation during the next 15 years (2006-2020).more....
