About the Contest

Developments in science and technology are fundamentally altering the way people live, connect, communicate and transact, with profound effects on economic development. Science and technology are key drivers to development, because technological and scientific revolutions underpin economic advances, improvements in health systems, education and infrastructure. The extent to which developing economies emerge as economic powerhouses depends on their ability to grasp and apply insights from science and technology and use them creatively. Science and technology have co-evolved throughout the history and innovation is the primary driver of technological growth.

As distinctions between fundamental and problem-oriented research have blurred, and demands to make public research more responsive to the needs of business and civil society have mounted, there is a greater need for increased and more efficient linkages between science and innovation. Science-innovation linkages can take many forms, from contract and collaborative research and personnel transfers to technology licenses and creation of spin-off firms. Modern science, whose methodologies give special privilege to use de-contextualizing strategies and downplay the role of context-sensitive strategies, have been extraordinarily successful in producing knowledge whose applications have transformed the shape of the world.

The contest on “Primal Research Ideas in Science and Management” intends to provide a platform for students to showcase their practical innovations as per the specified themes. It aims at providing the participants the opportunity to disseminate their work in public, to collaborate with researchers of similar interest and to explore potential funding.
