Dear Leaders of Asian Innovation,

The world we live today is growingly influenced by science and technology, and its rapid development has made it almost impossible to make a prediction. Wisdoms and ideas must be gathered to identify appropriate measures for risks and uncertainties rising from new landscape of S&T. To seek solutions and better prepare ourselves, the direction of science, technology and innovation (STI) policy and national strategies should be shared among key players in innovation.

In this light, the 4th Asian Innovation Forum (AIF) will be held on July 10th in Taipei, Taiwan, to discuss innovation in the making of STI policy among Asian countries. This year, the forum is specially co-organized by Korea institute of S&T Evaluation and Planning (KISTEP) and Science & Technology Policy Research and Information Center (STPI), in an effort to provide the platform to a broader range of experts. Bringing policymakers, researchers and innovation leaders, the 4th AIF will address national action plans for STI, ways to engage the public with emerging technology and practices in the process of policy implementation.

It would be our privilege to have your participation as we believe that your contribution will be an excellent addition to the forum. Please join us to find creative solutions with other key players in Asia innovation.
