Recommendations Arising out of the Technical Sessions
(a)Issues to be addressed in the short-term:

  • The notion of ‘start and end with the market’ needs to be considered selectively to the formulated activities of the National Research Agenda;
  • Attention and necessary funding requirement needs to be met in order to stimulate ‘reverse engineering’ and other forms of S&T activities.

(b)Issues to be addressed in the medium- and long-term:
Policy level:

  • To capitalize academic community and to encourage innovation in industry
  • Research policy has to be in-line with innovation policy so as to generate economically and valuable creation by capitalizing on the academic community and research institutes
  • Capital investment policy needs to be in-line with technology investment policy by stimulating increasing participation of industry in innovation through R&D activities.

Interaction among the elements level:
Mechanism which enhance interaction amongst the four spiral components, i.e. Government, universities, research institutes, and industry:

  • Interaction amongst universities and R&D institutions shall be directed for the mastery of science and technology through R&D, and enhancement of the level of expertise through universities
  • Interaction among universities and firms to increase the supply of experts and skilled human resources for industry and industry support in funding the education of expertise in the universities.
  • Interaction among R&D institutions and firms for enhancing technical-business ability by utilization of knowledge resulted from R &D activities, mastering knowledge through R&D institution by industry participation
  • Interconnection amongst the Government – Industry/Firm- R&D Institution – University to create institutional network which enhance implementation of effective policy, R&D productivity, quality of university, efficient industry as an integrated system.

Support instrument level

  • To create infrastructure and support mechanism instruments and rules of the game which reinforce each other among the four components (Government, university, research institutes, and firms).
  • Instrument for R&D institutes-university interaction, creating joint Ph.D. program (research institute-university). This Ph.D. level research involving expertise from university and Ph. D. level program in university utilizing research infrastructure in R&D institution.
  • Instrument for university-firms interaction, establishing programs to push the supply of experts through increasing the number of Ph.D. level degree holders required by firms
  • Instruments for R&D institutes-firms interaction, creating enhancement of knowledge mastery by sabbatical research activities. Researchers from R&D institutes take sabbatical leave working in firms and young researchers from industry take sabbatical leave working in R&D institutes.
  • Instrument for Government-firms-research institutes-universities functional interconnection, creating support in the area of administrative, financial and fiscal from Government to stimulate the functioning of institutional network that accelerate R&D productivity, improve quality of university, and improve business efficiency as an integrated system
