As a major international event of STEPI, the Symposium serves as a place for experts at home and abroad to share information about each nation's science technology policy and establish a global cooperation network by making presentations and discuss science technology policy and technological innovation.

Invitation

The coming convergence of technology is expected to bring about great changes in our industries and the economy thus leaving a grave impact on our society as a whole. The government, therefore, is tasked with preparing a new strategy that will not only facilitate the development of science, technology and ICT as the key driving forces of such change, but will also put in place the necessary regulations and policies that will prepare the nation for the forthcoming intelligence society.

As a leading policy research institute in Korea, the Science and Technology Policy Institute (STEPI) has primarily focused on the research to discover a new paradigm for science, technology and innovation in Korea. And to celebrate as well as emphasize the need to continue such work, STEPI, for its upcoming 30th anniversary, is inviting domestic and international experts to discuss innovation policies that will help us prepare for this coming intelligence society.

The STEPI International Symposium provides a venue for prominent scholars worldwide to come together to discuss the role of STI in our future society, the 4th Industrial Revolution, innovation policy, and the critical role that innovation policy plays for sustainable development. It will be our great honor, therefore, if you will join us at this year’s symposium, enrich the discussion on these important topics and help us to draw critical implications on future policy tasks for this coming intelligence society.
