Opportunities for research communities
ITU Academia members can contribute to the ITU expert groups responsible for radiocommunication, standardization and development, strengthening the work of ITU as well as boosting the impact of their own research.
ITU Kaleidoscope conferences highlight research into key strategic topics for ITU-led standardization processes. The 2021 edition of the conference featured expert insights on the growing synergy between physical and virtual space and the resulting influence on art and culture.
