Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

United Nations Industrial Development Organization

UNIDO supports sustainable industrial development — including technological development — in developing countries and economies in transition. In developing countries, UNIDO's key activities in promoting technology are providing assistance in capacity-building in emerging technologies, undertaking technology foresight — an instrument for strategic decision-making and policies formulation — for setting research priorities and identify challenges and opportunities for technological development, and  creating and strengthening technological institutions, as well as supporting links between them. {{LINK_LABEL_GO_TO_WEBSITE}}
