For this purpose concerted efforts focusing on three key activities need to be undertaken, namely: (a) facilitation the flow of technology and innovation information from various sources within the Asia-Pacific region and also from outside of the region; (b) intermediation of innovation amongst its Member States so as to increase its exchange and adoption; and (c) exchange of knowledge, good practices, and experiences in converting STI into competitive business through startups and/or existing established firms. Towards achieving these objectives, APCTT is jointly organizing an Innovation Summit & International Conference on Technology Transfer and Internationalization of Technology-based Businesses in partnership with Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA), and Japan ASEAN Science Technology and Innovation Platform (JASTIP) during 1-2 November 2018 in Tangerang, Indonesia.
