The Office of Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India (Office of PSA) and the Department of Science and Technology (DST) have jointly initiated the process of formulating Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy (STIP 2020). This will be India’s 5th national policy on Science and Technology. The policy is being formulated at a crucial juncture where India and the world are tackling the crisis of COVID-19 pandemic. The post-COVID-19 world demands for a new outlook and strategy for STI – in terms of priorities, sectoral focus, and broadly the way research is done, technologies are developed and deployed for larger socio-economic welfare.
