International Conference on
Technology Management: University/Industry/Government Collaboration
UnIG '96
June 24-26 1996, Istanbul, Turkey

Organized under the patronage of
His Excellency Suleyman Demirel,(ITU'INSAAT-49)
the President of the Republic of Turkey

Organized by:
UNESCO Chair on Mechatronics at Bogazici University

Within the framework of:
UNESCO UNISPAR (University-Industry-Science Partnership) Program

Objectives and the Theme
The changing global economy and the changing norms of scientific
research are strengthening the University/Industry/Government (UnIG)
cooperative ventures. The strategic planning in R&D environment is of
vital importance and requires the seeking of opportunities and
technology forecasting. The understanding of different modalities of
cooperation between universities and industry and the role of
governments in promoting this cooperation is therefore essential for
the policy-makers who desire to maintain a grasp of emerging
technologies. The main objective of this conference is to explore the
means and instruments to establish effective and lasting
University/Industry/Government collaboration and to present case
studies in this respect. The barriers that may hinder such a fruitful
collaboration will also be deliberated upon. The results of the
conference will be reported at the World Congress of Engineering
Educators and Industry Leaders to be held in Paris on 2-5 July 1996.

Scope of the Conference
The scope of the conference will include - but not be limited to - the

* Development and management of institutions such as industrial parks,
high-tech corridors and incubators.
* R&D incentives and technology transfer mechanisms for small and
medium sized firms.
* Entrepreneurship and financial instruments.
* Transfer and diffusion of technology.
* Technology pirating and patent rights.
* Development of legal and procedural frameworks.
* Development of tools and methodologies.
* Development of R&D consortia.
* Development of educational programs.
* Management of innovation.
* Management of technological systems.
