This paper presentation reflects literature review and the theoretical approaches on the relevance of the interdependent dynamics of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) and their relationship to economic growth. The paper will do a review on literature of case studies and will aim to understand how the STI indicators have been applied or not applied in Mozambique for framing policy on economic planning purpose. Evolutionary theories like those of Schumpeter and others have complex and dynamic approaches which are conceptually attractive. In this paper we examine their respective virtues and limitations, and their visibility when connected with practical policy-making. In this context, the paper aims to examine the relative strengths and weaknesses of science and technology in the economy of Mozambique and analyze the policies identified to support the development of science, technology and innovation. This theoretical approach will also reflect on the relevance of the interdependent policy issues relating to the dynamics of science, technology and innovation and their relationship to economic growth.
