Hide / Show Abstract

Innovation is fundamental for the development of new technologies, which will help to achieve social, economic and environmental sustainability. Academia’s long-term approach to research is a major contributor to innovation. It also has actively participated in the success of information and communication technologies (ICTs). These are some of the reasons why ITU seeks to strengthen its relationship with academia, the source of so much crucial research and so many innovative ideas.
