My name is Eugene Sebastian. I have nearly 20 years experience in international strategy and operational management in higher education. Smart Societies blog helps keep me engaged with the pace of political, social and economic changes that is occurring in emerging economies like Brazil, China, Indonesia and India.
More and more, science, technology, higher education and innovation are playing important roles in a nation’s competitiveness. Major investment into science and technology research and IT infrastructure is critical to improving productivity and efficiency. Higher education and training helps economies move up the value chain. And creating an enabling environment fosters innovation. Science, education and innovation have the potential to play an important strategic role in helping emerging economies progress. This blogs is my attempt to capture that progress. I curate and publish regularly a range of articles covering the rapid changes.
