Dear Leaders of Asian Innovation,

Since the inauguration of Asian Innovation Forum (AIF) and the launch of Asian STI Think Tanks Network (ASTN) in 2015, the platform has allowed us to explore insights on S&T innovation (STI) in Asian region during the last five years. Experts from policymaking, research and education shared experiences in each scope of their fields, and had a vast amount of discussion to learn STI strategies from neighboring countries.

This effort was made to create 'Better Asia Tomorrow' through innovation, as the expectation from society has risen with the increasing role of technology in our life. Asian Innovation Forum (AIF) touched upon various topics such as STI for Sustainable Growth, Fostering Creative Talents in the 4th Industrial Revolution Era and Knowledge Translation of Research Findings. In addition, with your contribution and support, Korea Institute of S&T Evaluation and Planning (KISTEP) was able to collaborate and co-host the 3rd and 4th forum at Seoul, South Korea and Taipei, Taiwan R.O.C. with ECOSF and STPI.

This year, the 5th Asian Innovation Forum will be co-organized by KISTEP and Asian Society for Innovation and Policy (ASIP) as a joint event with ASIP Conference at the University of Philippines Diliman, Quezon City on Oct. 3rd to Oct. 5th. There will be two AIF sessions on Future of Ecosystem for SMEs & Startups and National R&D Investment; Its Adequacy & Implementation.

We would like to cordially invite you to ASIP Conference and AIF for building a stronger STI community and opening a possibility of international collaboration in the future, as well as sharing knowledge and experience on S&T innovation.
