About This Book

Innovations and inventions arise of course from many sources and situations. In this study two National University of Singapore scientists look at ongoing patterns of research and discuss their trends towards expansion in Asia. Factors which increasingly enable this expansion in research are described and relevant factors are seen to include: population growth and urbanisation, spread of ICT, food supply and food safety issues, ageing and health care demands. Proposals are made for the creation of global mindsets in the planning and conduct of research. With black-and-white illustrations, tables, graphics, bibliography and web references.
