“If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” These words famously used by Isaac Newton in a very humble examination of his achievements remind us that the creation of knowledge is an iterative process built on the collective efforts of an ecosystem of thinkers and innovators. Many of the best-known developments in information and communication technology (ICT) found their roots in the research community and, in the interests of the ICT ecosystem, ITU continues to make great efforts to encourage the participation of academic and research institutes in our work.
