Established in 2021, the Science & Technology (S&T) Policy vertical at Centre for Civil Society is dedicated to advancing policy solutions that foster scientific enquiry and research. Through our publications, discussions and events, we strive to facilitate the creation and dissemination of new scientific knowledge in India. To strengthen the science ecosystem and promote innovation and scientific advancement, we focus on the fundamentals of S&T research systems in India.
Our areas of analysis include S&T policy priorities in India, investment in scientific research and development, research innovation & productivity and open access. We also raise awareness on crucial S&T issues through social media outreach and our policy dialogue series titled PRISM. Through conversations with experts from different fields, the PRISM events give practitioners and enthusiasts the space to explore critical S&T ideas from multiple perspectives.
