The last decade produced two increasing trends in the pattern of global science and technology systems. The first concerns the internationalisation of R&D and the second the increasingly global nature of innovation. The former reflects Foreign Direct Investment, foreign R&D affiliations of Trans National Corporations (TNCs) and other companies and increased international collaborations through joint ventures and other networking mechanisms. The latter is a recent trend concerning innovation networks of companies stretching beyond in-house or home country locations into foreign locations. This is also a product of business and knowledge process outsourcing, R&D and technical services outsourcing and moving other institutional and organisational operations to foreign locations. There are a number of innovation chain network operations conducted or contracted to foreign locations which create new business opportunities. The corporate model of R&D pursued within home country locations within physical boundaries of the corporate firm is thus fast undergoing a transformation. Various topics which will be covered under this are: a) Foreign R&D centres and its relations with Indian industry including spin-offs and spill-overs; b) New patterns of globalised innovation and emerging networks and national systems of innovation; c) Capitalising knowledge from university - industry relations and partnerships; d) Internationalisation of HEIs including WTO and its impact on science and technology education; e) Globalisation and impact on SMEs and industrial clusters; and f) Emerging technologies and impact on industry.
