Science and Technology Convergence Forum (STC) aims to encourage science and industry cooperation in IT sector.
The forum consists of parallel sessions in a line of 6 areas; those disclose the current status of scientific achievements, analyze and present issues as well as investigate potential avenues of cooperation between science and technology.
Through the sessions the scientific community and the industry will be able to share and exchange ideas on possible new projects, discuss ongoing developments and discuss issues that hinder the progress of either side.
The areas of the forum are:
