  The programme is strengthening the strategic role of the CSIR in industrial development. A new bio-refinery facility at the CSIR’s Durban Campus, will provide cutting-edge analytical and pilot. To better enable new capabilities and to defend the nation against emerging threats in a new security environment, the role of emerging sciences and technology for U.S. defense and foreign policy should be analytically assessed, theoretically-developed, and understood, i.e., how emerging technologies reconcile with or challenge traditional.

Agenda for Sustainable development, by helping to define the integral role of the Science, Technology and Innovation community in ensuring sustainable urban development. The objective of this paper is to illustrate the key role of STI, including ICT, in the development of a smart city and its infrastructure.   Nuclear technology, biotechnology, and information technology (IT) are the major technological innovations raising ethical and moral issues. The major ethical or moral issues in technology include ethical dilemmas, health issues, job displacement, and gender. Ethical issues with technology related to ethical dilemmas.
