Dear Leaders of Asian Innovation,

Unprecedented innovation manifests the 4th industrial revolution today, and the world has never been more perplexed with the new kind of evolution. Changes that prevail in technology are merely the beginning, by which every part of human life will be influenced. As the world transforms at enormous speed, paradigm shifts will occur with new risks and uncertainties. To address these challenges and seek creative solutions, collaborative efforts for inclusive and sustainable growth are needed.

In this light, the 3rd Asian Innovation Forum (AIF) will be held on August 29th in Seoul, Korea. The forum aims to seek new possibilities with policymakers, researchers and innovation leaders by sharing knowledge and experiences in science, technology and innovation (STI). Organized by Korea Institute of S&T Evaluation and Planning (KISTEP) since 2015, AIF has enabled leaders to discuss and exchange ideas on various topics such as value creation in innovation economy, evidence-based policymaking, sustainable development and science diplomacy. The platform will continue to identify national and global agenda for STI by offering communication channels for emerging issues and development strategies.

We cordially invite you to share insights and connect at the hub of Asian innovation. It would be our privilege and honor to have your participation as we believe that your contribution will be an excellent addition to the forum. Please join us in shaping the dialogue to explore, discuss and find collaborative solutions for better Asia. We look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

President of KISTEP
Kichul Lim
