We have the technical do-hows and know-hows, and ITU helps us to turn them into policies and standards. I think it is particularly important for academia to realize that research and innovation do not just come as papers. We do propagate forward some output, but we also need to make sure this is beneficial to human cause in general.

Academia principally concerns the production of new knowledge. Working with academia gives civil society, governments and industry the opportunity to use peer review process and scientific methods, to objectively understand the impact of any intervention on society, and to be able to build knowledge for the future.

Students are in need of a job after graduation. Jobs are supposed to be initiated from industry. In this respect, ITU can be regarded as a bridge which maps future industrial necessities onto appropriate directions for academicians, researchers, teachers and students to invest time and effort for their graduate projects, research projects and internships. Cooperation with ITU can therefore be beneficial for societies' related scientific and research institutes.
