Appropriate management of scientific human resources is needed to promote research activities, which contribute to improving the quality of human life. Human resources in science and technology are defined as persons having graduated at the tertiary level of education or employed in a science and technology occupation for which a high qualification is normally required and the innovation potential is high. As the science and technology that support our daily lives and society become increasingly sophisticated and complex, the roles of S&T people are more important than ever, and opportunities for such people are needed. One of the main concerns in the modern societies is the environment saving and sustainability. Therefore, this research discusses the concepts of human resources in science and technology and how it contributes to the sustainable development of the society. Future work is needed to provide to build a rigid conceptual framework of the relationship between the two concepts and to provide some case studies and empirical research as well.
