background of bangladesh
Background of Bangladesh

Bangladesh came into existence as an independent & sovereign state in the world map on 16th December in 1971 after 9th month direct struggle & a blood-bath against the West Pakistan (from March 25 to December 16, 1971) the nation politically came as "The Peoples' Republic of Bangladesh".

The country at birth had inherited a poor undiversified mixed economy characterized by an undeveloped infrastructure, stagnant agriculture and a rapidly growing population.

From the last decades it is considered as a developing country with-

  • Development of Science & Technology
  • Industrial development
  • Development of education
  • Development of natural resources
  • Development of various infrastructures
  • Controlling the growth rate of population and
  • Increasing the agricultural production; as well
  • Socio-economic developme

  • The National Science & Technology Policy (NSTP)

National Science & Technology Policy (NSTP) was drafted in 1985 by the Science and Technology Division under the Ministry of Education and subsequently approved by the National Committee for Science and Technology. Now it is under the Ministry of Science and Information Communication Technology. The policy being reviewed timely according to the change of scenario.


  • Scientific & Technological Development
  • Proper Utilization of Research Result
  • Skill Development for the learning-absorption process for imported technology
  • Ensure Development of support facilities like information and documentation services, computer networks and software packages
  • Provide support to emerging technologies like bio-technology, genetic engineering, micro-electronics and renewable sources of energy etc.

BackgroundBANSDOC (PANSDOC) was established in 1963 as a branch office of the then Pakistan Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (PCSIR). It has come out as Bangladesh National Scientific Technical Documentation Centre (BANSDOC) in 1972 as a unit of BCSIR. In 1987 BANSDOC has separated from BCSIR emerged as an independent S & T Inf. and Documentation Centre.

s t and r d development in bangladesh

S &T and R & D Development in Bangladesh

In April to August’ 1997 BANSDOC has thrown a Questionnaire for data collection to 168 Organization & Department including various science departments of 10 Universities (including 2 Private universities) has sent their status of their S & T potentials and capability. For the Next Initiatives (see Questionnaire)Logically it is mentioned that earlier BANSDOC did not perform such kinds of data collection activities according to the questionnaire provided by the UNESCO (UIS). However, Some recent S & T, R & D indicators are-
