Blurb/Shorttext:
Exploring formation,growth and changing structure of scientific communities in India and China,the book highlights that since late 1980s these countries are witnessing new challenges with the onset of liberalization and globalization.Eventually, scientific communities in these countries are poised for confrontation with a new challenge posed by knowledge intensive technologies. With this new change,the social control of science is being governed by market forces with declining role of State as well as that of factors internal to science. As such,scientific communities are undergoing metamorphosis,as never before in the changed scenario of socio-political and economic environment. The new order involves many actors,such as enterprises,universities,research institutions, government,venture capitalists and so on,where basic research is often a product of highly focused applied research rather than the other way round, and the most leading edge research is team based and trans disciplinary.This is leading to networking of scientific communities with active participation of universities, industry, financial institutions and the government in a Tetra Helix mode.
