In the period under review, the Department of Science and Technology (DST) made some significant achievements in its quest to provide world-class scientific infrastructure so as to support research, development and innovation (RDI). The Department continues to be guided by key strategic documents, namely the National Research and Development Strategy (NRDS), the White Paper on Science and Technology and the Ten-Year Innovation Plan (TYIP). The Department has continued the process of careful consideration and, where appropriate, implementation of the analysis of the Ministerial Review Committee. However, the Department also calls on international expertise and convened a high-powered international panel, in partnership with the European Commission, to develop a multi-year, high-level roadmap for research and innovation infrastructure.
