World Bank Science, Technology and Innovation Global Forum - Background Discussion Paper

Abstract

The World Bank convened a Global Forum in Washington, DC on February 13-15, 2007, to discuss strategies, programs, and policies for building science, technology and innovation capacity in developing countries for sustainable growth and poverty reduction. This Discussion Paper was a preliminary effort to frame the discussion, raise critical issues, highlight some key topics for possible discussion at the Forum, and, most importantly, to elicit comments, feedback, and suggestions for improvement from a wide range of stakeholders and potential participants. The objective of the paper was to encourage a discussion rather than foreclose comment, discussion, and dissent.
