Italy-Turkey Dialogue on Technological Innovation


This project aims to identify ways and means to increase technological cooperation between institutions and companies of two large developed countries and important economies, Italy and Turkey. After a short introductory review on the two national research and technology systems the report describes the situation, programs, capabilities and opportunities in two particular sectors - distributed energy generation and renewable sources (DG) and the internet of the future (IF) - that will probably have an important impact on the future of the two countries’ economies and societies. Both sectors have similar interesting characteristics (development based on existing technologies accompanied by strong research programs, very high “pervasiveness”, big growth expectations based on new potential applications) and are crucial for the development of small, dispersed communities typical of both countries. The report, supported by background papers written by high-level specialists, illustrates and assesses status, development policies, efforts and resources devoted to these sectors. Highlights of the longer-term prospects are also included. Some remarks, focusing mostly on the potential bilateral and multilateral cooperation, conclude the report.

Documento preparato dall'Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) e dal Global Relations Forum (GRF) nell'ambito dell'VII Forum di dialogo italo-turco, Roma, 8-9 novembre 2010.
