Innovations coupled with entrepreneurships in Science and Technology are essentially needed for realizing the UN goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. For that matter, appropriate, affordable, simple and easy to use technologies should be generated for sustainable agriculture, safe food, environment protection and tangible health. Science, Technology, Innovations and Entrepreneurships can increase the efficiency, effectiveness, impact and complement the efforts of government and institutions for socio-economic and environmental benefits under climate change. Several innovations and green technologies, bio-technologies, agri-technologies developed and spread around the world over the last few decades, have helped improving crop growth and health, establishing enterprises in agriculture, food and feed processing, health/hygiene, infrastructure and civic amenities in rural and urban settings. Digital technologies support almost free and fast flow of ideas, knowledge and data offering opportunities for collaborative and open approaches to innovation in Science, Technology, and Entrepreneurship for inclusive growth. This book contains thirty-seven papers contributed by luminaries in science and technology and young researchers from various countries. For systematic and comprehensive reading these papers have been resolved into five sections including two vision papers on plant-based meat alternatives and GM food and feed and thirty-five papers included in four sections namely Crop Improvement; Sustainability, Energy and Environment; Biologically Oriented Agriculture; Technology for Health Diagnostics. Hope this book will serve the valuable purpose by inspiring the readers from among teachers, scientists, research scholars, students, NGO's, policy planners alike to enrich their knowledge poolContents: VISION PAPER Meat Alternatives (“Plant-Based Meat”) Will Plow Up Agriculture in the Future by 2025/2050!?
