It is widely accepted that person-embodied technology or S&T human resources are crucial to technological and economic development. Planning and foresight of S&T human resources have become all the more significant in the era of globalization and rapid technological change. This requires a special focus in science policy studies as there are wide gaps in knowledge as only the supply of human resources are paid attention to at the neglect of the demand side of the same. In the context of increasing competition and the complexity of the innovation process, greater research efforts require to be made. To meet the new challenges from globally-distributed technology innovation, information age and service development, a holistic approach is needed to integrate key strategies to achieve sustainable development through technology innovation and human resource planning. More future research is expected to build up a strategic and holistic model of human resource development so as to effectively integrate culture, organizational change and high-technology. Research topics which will also be covered in this broad area include: a) Indian diaspora in science and technology including mobility of scientists; b) Demand and supply w.r.t skills in high technologies including ICT and the manufacturing sectors; and c) Brain drain, brian gain and brain circulation of professionals in S&T fields.
