It is the era of science and technology. All our lives revolve around science; every activity we perform is directly or indirectly linked to Science and Technology. India is one of the top countries in scientific research and space exploration. Moreover, India ranks third in the most attractive investment destinations globally for technology transactions, inferring that India's scientific realms have progressed a lot.
According to the Global Innovation Index of 2020, India ranks 48th overall in innovation. Also, it ranks amongst the top 15 nations in Information and Communication Technology and R&D-intensive global companies.
India has begun various funding policies that enable the nation to improve its essential strategic industries, including space, energy, and life sciences.
In terms of the burgeoning AI, the National Institution for Transforming India has identified the below five sectors to focus its efforts towards the implementation of Artificial Intelligence, helping in the economic development of our country:
India is currently receiving a considerable focus on energy, and energy is one of India's growing areas. The Humanity Welfare Council understands the necessity to switch to sustainable and enduring renewable sources of energy. We have initiated Project Greensun to promote solar energy use, the most reliable source of electricity, without transmitting any harmful gases into the environment. We use advanced, state-of-the-art, cost-effective techniques and ways to gather solar energy and utilize it most effectively.
HWC is rigorously working towards establishing India as a leader in industrialization and technological development.
A few of the recent developments in Indian science and technology are as follows:
As India reorients and marches ahead, we need to find a sustainable development pathway. The pathway should include social, economic, and environmental sustainability to achieve an Atma Nirbhar Bharat in Science, Innovations, Technologies, and Knowledge systems. The current crisis has presented a window of opportunity for R&D establishments, academics, and industries to work together to share faith, synergy, collaboration, and cooperation.
At the Humanity Welfare Council, we believe that science and technology are needed to develop a nation. So, we started out with a few initiatives to make our country technically advanced and aware:
As India looks to expand its nuclear capacity, significant developments in the nuclear energy sector are likely to happen. HWC works towards and aspires to position India among the world's top scientific powers.
With the focus and advent of science and nanotechnology in India, the biomedical sector and the nuclear industries are evolving. Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy 2020 is India's new plan to promote science more efficiently with the experts driving it. As both challenges and hope lie ahead for India, let us be optimistic about the developments which would steer our spotlight from 'challenges' to 'hope' soon.
Let us all stand together in making India a developed nation by striving to become technically equipped in every field and grow with the growing world.
