The objective of the International Conferences on Technology Policy and Innovation (ICTPI) is to bring together leading representatives of academic, business, and government sectors worldwide to present and discuss current and future issues of critical importance for using science and technology to foster regional economic development and improved social wellbeing, locally and globally. Multidisciplinary perspectives are encouraged to provide state-of-the-art and useful knowledge to decision makers in both the private and public sectors - including informed and effective education, business, and government policies and strategies for the global, knowledge economy.
