by Leo Wee Hin Tan, R. Subramaniam
International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 25, No. 5, 2003

Abstract: The insertion of science and technology centres in the scientific and educational infrastructure of developing nations is suggested to be an effective way to promote a popular science culture among people, thus helping to catalyse a culture supportive of science and technology-driven socio-economic development. A framework for the setting up of such centres is presented in the context of national initiatives and/or international development assistance. The experiences of the Singapore Science Centre on some of the issues are discussed.
