Leading Science and Technology: India Next?



March 2018 | 312 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd

In a world buzzing with artificial intelligence, gene therapy, 3-D printing, and brain implants, where does India stand? India is not yet a front-runner in creating new knowledge and world-changing inventions. India does not even feature among the top 10 countries in scientific research.

In this book, Varun argues that India would risk its economic progress, technology industry, and social development if it does not lead in research and innovation. He deliberates on how we can make India a leader in science and technology and uses a data-based approach to highlight the various limitations of India’s research ecosystem. He demystifies how discoveries and inventions happen through stories and personal experiences.

The book provides concrete, well-reasoned steps to build a “Scientific India.” This is essential for India’s success and for serving the cause of human progress.
