For the past years, the advancement and innovation of various fields of technology
converge that resulted in the formation of emerging technologies. A technical
innovation which represents progressive developments within a field of competitive
advantage is considered as an emerging technology. In general, emerging technologies
denote significant technology developments that capture new territory for the

is the focus of research and development.
At the beginning of the new millennium the request for innovation increased.
Complex manufacturing, miniaturization of the components, development of the

Innovation Strategy or a Regional Innovation Society Initiative, aimed at developing effective innovation sys
tems and spreading Information & Communication Technologies related know-how at regional level.

is vital to the future of their company?...
nnovation is widely acknowledged as being key to economic growth and progress, particularly as innovation by business enterprises is vital in ensuring their future success and competitiveness in an increasingly competitive global market. With this in mind, the Centre for Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators (CeSTII) was commissioned by the Department of Science and Technology (DST) to undertake a national innovation survey based on international best practice.
The conference also adopted the Interlaken Declaration on Animal Genetic Resources,
which affirms countries’ commitment to the implementation of the Global Plan of Action
and to ensuring that the world’s livestock biodiversity is utilized to promote global food
security and remains available to future generations. There is strong commitment from the
government of Ethiopia to develop the livestock sector through mechanisms that ensure
conservation of the genetic resources and sustainable use....
