The goal of this project directly responds to a draft proposal for APEC Leaders’ declaration under the subject “Toward Innovation-Driven Development”. Under this scheme, improving innovation system is a priority area where connectivity and collaboration in the region are urgently needed.
The project aims to integrate foresight tools to understand the dynamics of innovation system. The scope involves not only a specific knowledge base, technologies, inputs and demands, but also trends and trend-breaking developments which are key drivers.
The project is intended to develop methods of industrial innovation foresight for the development of a future-oriented innovation policy by identifying emerging markets, key drivers, technology trends, technology readiness, key technology, and requirements. The expected outcome is maintaining long term development by stimulating immediate actions needed to be taken today, and guiding future collaboration in the region towards the next decade in science, technology and innovation advances to enhance competitiveness and sustainable development.
