Several quantitative techniques such as in Data Envelopment Analysis, Scientometrics, Network analysis in semantic data and collaborations, Predictive Analytics, Simulation techniques and Data Mining have enormous possibilities in uncovering previously unknown patterns in S & T growth that can indicate the future and inform policy. Patterns in data can reveal the nature of growth and diversification in different subjects and applications in new technologies. Analysis of knowledge base of the diaspora can unravel information about diaspora - a vast potential resource for the country.  Deciphered patterns and dynamics of growth in these dimensions can inform future policies and strategies in S & T at institutional, regional and national levels.
