Abstract

This research navigates the disruptions the government science sector faces in an era of rapid technological change, examining the interplay of government science funding, information technology integration, and research collaboration networks. The study employs a cross-sectional design, exploring the impact of government scientific communication policies and access to advanced research technologies as independent variables, mediated by a researcher's digital literacy and skills, on the dependent variable of innovation resilience in government science. Additionally, the moderating role of government scientific infrastructure and capabilities is investigated. A comprehensive survey was administered to participants within the government science sector in Indonesia, encompassing diverse demographics and scientific disciplines. Results reveal a significant positive association between transparent government communication policies and innovation resilience, highlighting the pivotal role of effective communication in fostering adaptability. Furthermore, the study underscores the importance of government initiatives in building digital literacy and skills among researchers. The positive impact of communication policies on digital capabilities emphasizes the need for proactive strategies to enhance workforce proficiency in a technologically dynamic environment. The conceptual framework, validated through empirical findings, introduces the central construct of innovation resilience in government science, emphasizing adaptability to disruptive changes and consistent innovation.
