One can trace the institutionalization of modern science and technology in Nepal from about 1800 A.D. A few examples of modern science and technology institutions are: White Clover (Trifolium repens) in 1853, the first S&T institution; the Agriculture Office, in 1924; the Civil Medical School for "Compounders" and Dressers in 1934; Technical Training School for Sub-Overseers in 1942); and the Forest Training Centre for Rangers in 1942(see Sharma 1981). Nepal imported or established a number of modern science and technology projects such as a railway line, a jute mill and a ropeway line and a suspension bridge. The Pharping hydropower station built in 1911 was one of the first plants in the South Asian region. The first College imparting science was begun in 1919. After 1950, Nepal embarked on the path of modernization. Following the development plan of 1956, the Nepal Government took the initiative to develop infrastructure for S&T activities.The beginning of national S&T policies can be traced to the early 1960s. The government sought the assistance of UNESCO to advise on the formation of a body for the formulation of a Science Policy (Bajracharya 2001). In 1966, a detailed survey of scientific infrastructure was prepared under the commission of UNESCO.
