Researches in developing economies-Why are they behind?

Research in the developing economies, falls back nearly by ten years in most areas of science and health when compared to that of developed countries. While research is the backbone of science, compared to that of developed economies advancements in areas relevant to a specific country, developing or underdeveloped countries have provided it a very low priority. In the developing countries, the major obstacles facing research are:

  1. Paucity of funds and faulty channelisation of available funds.
  2. Lack of production and availability of research materials such as quality controlled reagents and chemicals.
  3. The delay in getting research materials manufactured in developed countries through import.
  4. Difficulties encountered in accessing required equipments and absence of custom analysis centers.
  5. Lack of encouragement and financial support from the parent institution.
  6. Non-availability or networking of up-to-date information.
  7. Lack of advanced training to scientists
  8. Lack of financial support to attend conferences, seminars, and workshops and training programs etc.- a very serious handicap of the scientists from developing countries.
  9. Lack of acceptance and recognition.
  10. Poverty and illiteracy of the population
  11. Lack of proper transfer of technology by advanced training of scientist in major institutions, and exchange programs in institutions where related research activities have been conducted successfully with more advanced facilities
  12. Lack of job security of the scientists
  13. Other facts such as the unscientific approaches towards research by the government agencies, untimely release of funds for sanctioned and ongoing projects, erratic power supply and poor working conditions etc
  14. Lack of research and development tie-ups and activities with industries
  15. Lack of proper planning
