About the product

This Millennium Project Task Force Report makes a powerful case for development policies to focus on key sources of economic growth, particularly the use of scientific and technological knowledge and related institutional adjustments. It outlines core areas for policy action, including a focus on platform or generic technologies; defining infrastructure services as foundations for technology; placing universities at the centre of local development and improving science education; spurring entrepreneurial activities; improving the policy environment and focusing on areas of under-funded research for development.
