Abstract—The era of globalization is the era of technological competition where the strength of a country is determined by technology advancement that will encourage economic growth. Technology advancement is dependent on human resource capacity. In that context, human resource with the ability to create and utilize the technology is needed, which is derived from STEM education. Human resource closely related to the development of S&T can be regarded as Human Resource in Science and Technology (HRST). Indonesia as a developing country has the potential to compete in global world, supported by positive economic growth and demographic bonuses. However, it is not good enough on some indicators in the development of S&T. Also, Indonesia still act as an adopter or technology importer. Therefore, we study how Indonesia is as an adopter or switch as an innovator by develop the Indonesia’s HRST dynamics model. The model simulation shows that there is a significant difference in economic growth through the changing mode of technology advancement with the support of STEM competent HRST.

Index Terms—System dynamics, STEM competency, HRST, technology, economy.
