Hominids started using primitive stone tools millions of years ago. The earliest stone tools were little more than a fractured rock, but approximately 75, years ago,  pressure flaking provided a way to make much finer work.
A national consultative workshop on developing a roll-out plan for the implementation of the Science Agenda for Agriculture in Africa S3A to help transform the agricultural sector, through science has been held in Accra.
Mr George Oduro, Deputy Minister of Food and Agriculture who read the speech on behalf of Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, the sector Minister, said the S3A was a long-term strategic framework that consisted mainly of the range of science and technology opportunities available to bring about agricultural transformation in Africa.
He explained that the consultative meeting would therefore help come out with modalities for the mainstreaming of the science agenda by institutions that implemented agricultural development programmes in the country.
Mr Oduro said the realisation of the Agenda depended of effective domestication of the frameworks agenda into national strategies, investment plans and action plans giving the uniqueness of the contexts, challenges, opportunities and priorities of African countries, including Ghana.
He said countries needed to be supported to drive the process of adapting the agenda to their context, especially in the development and implementation processes and working modalities in order to make the domestication of the S3A effective.
He said it was therefore appropriate that African countries prepared themselves to embrace the opportunity to grow their agricultural sector.In China, the 12th Five-Year Plan for Science and Technology Development calls for even greater investment in technology and sustainable development.
This builds on the many achievements of the “indigenous innovation strategy” – such as the increase in annual science and technology R&D funding by more than 20 per cent. Science and technology achievements transformation’s work in China universities faces new development opportunities and challenges.
Based on Shanghai University of Engineering Science as an example, this paper studies Mode 5: Cooperating with the National University Science and Technology Park Promote the Science and Technology. This chapter examines theories and empirical findings on the overlapping topics of progress in science and the factors that contribute to scientific discoveries.
It also considers the implications of these findings for behavioral and social science research on aging. The chapter first draws on contributions from the history and sociology of science to consider the nature of scientific progress.
