Title: RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION: THE BEDROCK FOR GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT

Authors: Emmanuel O. Chukwu

Topic: Health Science

Abstract:

Abstract:

Global development can only be achieved with solid reliance on research, technology and innovation. The three concepts represents the only way for developing the world in order to foster economic, education, environmental, medical and societal development at large. Development in science and technology are fundamentally altering the way people live, connect, communicate and transact, with profound effects on economic development. Science is the key which unlocks for humankind the store houses of nature. Obsessed by the quest to improve his life; to add values and make a paradigm shift in nature, a global change has smiled to the prevailing efforts of man. In the body of the work it was explained how research, technology and innovation has really proven to be the bedrock for global development especially in the areas of health, electrical and electronics, economy, environmental protection, agriculture and education. Adopting appropriate technologies leads directly to higher productivity, which is the key to growth. In societies that have large stock and flows of knowledge, virtuous circles that encourage widespread creativity and technological innovation emerge naturally, and allow sustained growth over long periods. In societies with limited stocks of knowledge, bright and creative people feel stifled and emigrate as soon as they can, creating a vicious circle that traps those who remain in a more impoverished space. Such societies stay mired in poverty and dependency. No doubt, without research, technology and innovation the world will remain in primitive and dark age.

    It is a literature review "RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION: THE BEDROCK FOR GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT". the information relative to the topic was not detailed. to form the "bedrock for global development".

      Thanks Davis for your comment. However i don't know if you were able to go through the entire article or you read only the abstract?. Also I would appreciate it more if you point out or suggest areas you think that needs improvement rather than generalized statement. I believe that if you had gone through the entire article you would appreciate the level of literature review done on the work.
      Thanks

    bedrock for global development is which way effect the human life & environment surrounded around the human ? global development how to achieve beneficially for us ?

      Thanks Dr. Nileshkumar for your question.
      Research, Technology and Innovation is bedrock for development and affects human life and environment as follows;
      In the health sector for example, they help in the production of medicine and treatment of diseases. This means that the methods and instruments used for diagnosing diseases and promoting sanitation and hygiene have aided in the reduction of mortality rate and improvement of the conditions of living. A country which lacks such scientific and technical innovative ideas will have to depend on other countries that were sensible enough to go on research and come up with such developments for existence of her people. Such a nation cannot be referred to as caprices of other nations with necessary science and technology. With research and technological innovations, many medical conditions and procedures that required significant periods of hospitalization before now can be treated or carried out within shortest period of time thus, reducing rapidly the length of hospitalization which in turn reduces costs and risks of infection. With the product of technological innovation and research called ‘telemedicine’ doctors can now interact, diagnose and treat patients through interactive video and communication equipments that allows viewing and reception of diagnostic data and x-rays . With innovative technology such as assisted reproductive technology, stem cells research and bio-medical technology, infertility is gradually becoming something of the past as there are so many options from which infertile couples can choose from now such as invitro fertilization, artificial insemination, e.t.c
      In the area of solving environmental problems of man for instance, with the innovations and research in modern technologies we can now reuse substances or objects that otherwise constitutes serious environmental hazards to man, through both air, water and land pollution. With technological innovations, a lot of developmental heights have being achieved. We can now produce automobiles that have less emission of hazardous gases thus, preserve our ozone layer and ecosystem in general while enhancing better conditions for the living. With growth in the economy, there’s an increasing opportunity for research-oriented jobs which provide employment of researchers. Research aims at providing insight on existing problems inherent in a system and how to solve them, discovery of facts about a phenomenon, development of new and better instruments and methods employed in various places of work and human endeavours. Most technological breakthroughs are products of research.
      I will suggest you go through the entire work, you will surely enjoy the article to the full.
      Thanks

    Dear Emmanuel O. Chukwu
    The topic you have taken to study is good. But what is your part of research in this area? You have mentioned others view and suggestions only.
    • Chukwu Emmanuel Okechukwu (Author) 27th Nov 2015 - 5:24 PM
      Thanks so much Dr. Saradha for your comment. I would want to say that the article is more of literature and paper presentation article. Having said that, I looked at both sides of what and how different people sees research, technology and innovation, the advantages and disadvantages then synthesis the two. However, the concluding argument of mine shows that I strongly believe that without research, technology and innovation there will be no development.
      Thanks and much regards.

      Thanks Dr. Saradha, I would want also want to add that I used the researched articles to prove my supportive point that research, technology and innovation is the bed rock for global development.
      Thanks

    As literature review titled "RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION: THE BEDROCK FOR GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT", I would have prefer more explanation detailed to bedrock for global development.
