“The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination.”
-John Schaar-

Creating these “paths” to the future requires the continual technical innovation which has undoubtedly increased the importance of comprehensive Research and Development (R&D). R&D drives the intellectual community into coming up with innovative ideas and production of prototypes to be commercialized. Computer and Information Communication Technology (ICT) have changed the way we communicate, do businesses, work and doing everyday activities. Without a doubt in the future, computer and its related technology will continue to influence all aspect of life, transcending all boundaries of human activities in all walks of life with new innovative ideas and products.

To mobilise and maximise the impact of R&D in generating these innovations, a symbiotic relationship between academia and the industry must be forged. With traditional walls between industry and academia falling, these two once distinct entities are rapidly inching closer to one another to create synergies.

“A single word to describe the new economy will be integration. In this new globally competitive environment it is the sum of the parts that provide the synergy. Universities must integrate itself to the industry value chain and contribute to make Malaysian businesses viable and competitive.”

YB Datuk Seri Dr Fong Chan Onn,

Minister of Human Resources.

The underlying goal of higher education has always been the creation and transfer of knowledge for the good of the society. Higher education institutions and universities not only contributed skilled human resources to industry, but also in various other ways. An ideal bond between academe and industry will quicken the pace of technological advancement. This bond or academia-industry partnership can be achieved through well orchestrated and concerted R&D collaborations. It is hoped that this conference on research and applications development of ICT would garner the immense potential of researchers and application developers from both the academia and the industry alike. This esteemed assembly of intellectuals and developers will provide a platform to strengthen the academia-industry partnership.
