Scientific Social Responsibility (SSR) draft

Scientific Social Responsibility (SSR) draft

Prime Minister recommended about the scientific social responsibility (SSR) for leading scientific institutions on the lines of corporate social responsibility (CSR) inorder to promote scientific excellence in all stakeholders including educational institutions. Prime Minister also strongly urged the scientist to keep a check on the rise of disruptive technologies and to leverage them for the growth of the company. Modi pledged that government will support  different scientific streams with emphasis on innovations. India would become the first country in the world to implement Scientific Social Responsibility (SSR) on the grounds of Corporate Social Responsibility.

The aim of the policy is to harness latent potential of the scientific community for strengthening linkages between science and society, and for making S&T ecosystem vibrant. The draft policy is based upon earlier policies like Scientific Policy Resolution 1958, Technology Policy Statement 1983, Science and Technology Policy 2003 and Science Technology and Innovation Policy 2013. The draft defines SSR as “the ethical obligation of knowledge workers in all fields of science and technology to voluntarily contribute their knowledge and resources to the widest spectrum of stakeholders in society, in a spirit of service and conscious reciprocity”. A central agency will be established at DST to implement the SSR.
