In the last ten years, three main information and communication advanced technologies (ICT) linked to spectacular scientific progress in the computer sciences, optoelectronics and electronics have intersected: GSM technology (mobile phones), satellite TV, and the world wide web. The effects of these new technological breakthroughs are presented in this book, with a focus on understanding the economic, social, and environmental influence of science and technology as they affect our globalized world. An examination of how science and innovation advances impact the future of developed as well as developing societies, particularly in Asia and Europe, is discussed. Also presented in this book are how Asian nations and European states address these challenges, assess the stakes, organize themselves, create initiative, invest, and promote regional or international co-operation.
