|Description:||5th International Conference of World Association for Sustainable Development (WASD) "Managing Knowledge, Technology and Development in the Era of Information Revolution"|
|Location:||Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia|
|Subject:||Science and technology are considered amongst the most effective means to enhance growth and socioeconomic development of nations. The acquisition and use of science and technology are critical for the achievement and sustenance of food security. In most countries, there is a wide separation of research and development (R&D) from production, which reinforces the preference of firms for foreign technology. The gap is widened further by a lack of functioning network of communications between governments and scientists on the one hand, and industries and technology users on the other. With few exceptions, the technological gap between the developed and developing countries, continues to grow. [gemäß den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
