Countries face numerous challenges in deploying science, technology and innovation (STI) for inclusive and sustainable development. These include subcritical resource allocation, lack of skills, ineffective policies, delivery and support mechanisms and weak inter-ministerial coordination. STI programme of the Centre is aimed to assist member countries in addressing these challenges through strengthening their capacity to evolve and adopt their own holistic approach to the development and governance of STI strategy.
APCTT, leveraging its experiences of assisting member countries in the area of science and technology (S&T) policies, national innovation systems (NIS) and innovation management has identified the following capacity building programme areas relevant to countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
These programme areas though focuses on renewable energy technology, biotechnology and nanotechnology, include other industrial sectors as identified by the member countries. STI capacity building projects and activities are developed with emphasis on south-south cooperation and implemented in cooperation and partnership with ESCAP member countries and international organizations.
