The report, jointly prepared by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and Google, showcases successful models of leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) for improved public services in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
Establishing Science and Technology Parks: A Reference Guidebook for Policymakers in Asia and the Pacific
During the past several decades, science and technology parks (STPs) in Asia have witnessed rapid development. This is reflected not only in the emergence of new STPs, but also in the successes of some prominent STPs in the region.
As we enter the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a revolution defined by frontier technological breakthroughs such as AI, robotics, 3D printing, and the Internet of Things amongst others, it will be critical that these technologies work for society and the environment as well as the economy if we…
Despite operating inefficiencies and security concerns, digital currencies are becoming a popular method of payment around the world. Digital currencies are not only the domain of developed nations. They also offer opportunities for developing countries pursuing sustainable development.
Frontier technologies could have significant positive impact for society and the environment. For example, data suggest that improved application of information and communication technologies to smart grids and transportation will reduce carbon emissions by an estimated 4.5 billion tons by 2020.
Innovative Development of Bottom-Up Nanotechnology-Based Value-Added Products for Enhancing Competitiveness in the Asia-Pacific
This report focuses on bottom-up synthesis of nanomaterials from the ‘poor man’s nanotechnology’ or ‘low-tech nanotech’ point of view– ‘poor man’ and ‘low tech’ in the sense of limited resources available to conduct cutting-edge nanotechnology research and development.
APCTT has developed a “Manual on Critical Issues in Nanotechnology R&D Management: An Asia-Pacific Perspective” to help various stakeholders involved in the research and development (R&D) and innovation management activities in the area of nanotechnology.
