S&T Information Diffusion Through Innovators Association
5 Pages Posted: 20 Sep 2007
The path of S&T information flow from the generators to the end users is long winded and also beset with hurdles. While low demand discourages the creation of an elaborate information resource base and a service system, lack of facilities restricts strengthening of the demand force. It takes powerful, ingenuous and radical measures well-designed to break away from this circular inter-dependence. Towards this end, all the players - information providers, promoters, intermediaries and end-users have to work in unison and generate enough thrust to attain the escape velocity. This paper focuses on the work of an intermediary, Indian Innovators Association.
