*The 4th INDIALICS Conference 2017*

*Innovation for Sustainable Development: Perspectives, Policies and
Practices in South Asia*

*Dates: 2nd to 4th November 2017*

*Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India*

*Call for Papers & Research Proposals*

In the last few decades, technological and organizational innovations have
played a pivotal role in transforming the economies and societies of the
South-Asian countries, setting them at the frontiers of science and
technology advancement. Various policies and institutional arrangements
have been restructured and created to achieve global competitiveness and
faster economic growth. However, along with high economic growth, there is
increasing inequality and exclusion as well as over-exploitation of natural
resources. The emerging challenge, therefore, is to accomplish equilibrium
between economic growth and social justice, through innovative and
sustainable practices.

Drawing inspiration from the existing narratives and discourses, the 4th
Indialics conference is thematised as *“Innovation for Sustainable
Development: Perspectives, Policies and Practices in South Asia”*. This
conference will explore the nature, determinants and direction of
innovation and new pathways for meeting future challenges in the context of
sustainable development with specific reference to South Asia. We posit
that the challenges cannot be seen as isolated from each other but
interconnected and require social, institutional and policy innovations,
political processes and the interconnections between these. The conference
will reflect on challenges and opportunities in fostering innovation for
socio-economic development and sustainability.

*Key Conference Themes will include: *

   - Innovation for Sustainable Agriculture (Sub-Themes: Food Security,
   Farmers’ Innovation, etc.)
   - Global Value Chains and Innovation Systems
   - Sanitation and Waste Management
   - Climate Change Adaption and Mitigation (Sub-Themes: Resilience, etc.)
   - Gender, Technology and Innovation
   - Innovation in the Informal Economy
