WTA (World Technopolis Association) is one of UNESCO-affiliated International Cooperation Agency to connect the advancement of science and technology to regional development. Furthermore, by making global networks for mutual cooperation among other Technopolises, WTA contributes to the happiness and prosper of humanity.
In this posting, I am going to cover about visions, history, and works of WTA, briefly.
WTA started from the consensus on the needs for establishment of International Science City Cooperation Organization debated at the International Symposium on Science and Technology Cities which held in 1996.
Due to endeavor of Daejeon Metropolitan City during 1996 and 1997,
WTA Inaugural General Assembly was held and it started its jurney with 23 cities in 10 countries.
In 2006, WTA established the official partnership between UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), and approved as an official NGO at 174th Session of the Unesco Executive Board held in April 2006.
Following this approval, WTA launches cooperative projects with UNESCO to assist the establishment and management of STPs and Technology Business Incubators in developing countries.
In 2014, Global Innovation Forum, the official UNESCO approved forum promoting the culture of innovation based on the science and technology, was established by Daejeon Metropolitan City, UNESCO and WTA.
Today, WTA becomes an international association having 102 members in 47 countries all over the world, and WTA is going to hold WTA High-Tech Fair, Daejeon Global Innovation Forum, and UNESCO - WTA International Training Workshop in September of 2017.
(Additional Information will be going to be posted in near future)
WTA is aiming to create a global network leading the development of sustainable science and technopolis city, also known as Technopolis, to promote international cooperation among cities and to promote mutual growth for creation of innovation bases on science and technology and regional development.
To achieve their ultimate goal, they not only connect science-technology-based innovation with regional development and build partnership for technopolis development, but also share knowledges and informations and foster civil exchanges and regionoal development.
Thanks to be interested in WTA!! See you.
