Innovation Diplomacy and Networking as INIF’s Top Priorities
International Affairs Advisor, Sohrab Assa declared innovation diplomacy and networking as INIF’s top priorities. He believes that technology and innovation diplomacy is one of the tools to create a suitable environment for interaction and development of international relations, strives to reduce the pain and poverty of human beings and create employment, development and prosperity.
Technology Investment Meeting, a two-day event that was held with the support and participation of Iran National Innovation Fund and Pardis Technology Park. On the second day of Technology Investment Meeting (TIM 2020) in INIF, Sohrab Assa said, “Every-day events have made it clear that in today's world, without close cooperation and good international interactions, no country alone will be able to resolve its problems and obstacles. These barriers, whether they are contagious diseases such as Corona, SARS, AIDS or Ebola, or environmental changes, such as forest fires, large storms or tsunamis, whether humanmade or self-destructive or natural, require international unity and cooperation in order to be handled.”
He then added, “Technology and innovation diplomacy, as one of the tools to create a suitable environment for interaction and development of international relations, strives to reduce the pain and poverty of human beings and create employment, development and prosperity.”
He also stated, “In an upside-down world in which the pervasive media, instead of welcoming the good news and encouraging empathy, are constantly talking about crises and trying to deceive us with the frightening news and depriving us of the spirit of life and the joy of discovery, we must promote trust and hope as two essential principles for economic growth. This hope and trust are the results of recognition, the results of optimism and the results of repetition of pleasant experiences. This can’t be achieved unless we are willing to work together to get the real meaning of the word "us".”
This should be mentioned that TIM has been designed by D-8 TTEN Secretariat. TIM is aimed at tracing the investment opportunities and sources in member and other countries by presenting the owners of technology and innovation their achievements to investors in common sessions. TIM is objected to becoming the platform of technology companies’ investment opportunities. As far as TIM is planned to be a comprehensive investment meeting in the technology arena, the events direct a perspective of technology and innovation subjects.
