Innovation for Development

Innovation for Development
2007 Annual Conference, 3-4 May 2007, Paris
Organised in collaboration with UNESCO

This year’s TII (Technology Innovation Information) annual conference, which is being organized in collaboration with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), will put the spotlight on how innovation, science and new technology is being harnessed through a whole range of international, national, corporate and private programs, schemes and initiatives for the benefit of the world’s developing countries and populations.

Innovation, the successful exploitation of new ideas, is widely recognized as a major driver of economic growth. The same goes for globalization. However, three-quarters of the world’s population is denied access to the benefits of these two phenomena.
