This morning I am an invited participant at the WSIS and Academia roundtable organised by the World Summit on the Information Society.
The semi-structured open roundtable will include stakeholders from academia and WSIS to discuss opportunities for collaboration and mutual support on ICTs and the sciences (between academic stakeholders, ITU, and the WSIS forum). This will, for example, include research partnerships, innovation-sharing, critical debate, networks and collaboration, and student involvement. Following the session, key points will feed into the creation of a pathway for academic involvement.
Many thanks to the moderator Suay Ozkula for the invitation and for organising this event.
