Introduction

Recognizing the importance of innovation, the International Telecommunication Union membership, at the World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC) in 2014 adopted a new output on innovation and partnership, and as an ITU-wide goal at the Plenipotentiary Conference 2014 in Busan. The WTDC also approved a set of Regional Initiatives, including the Regional Initiative for Europe on Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Youth. The innovation mandate aims to strengthen Member States capacity to integrate ICT innovation in national development agenda. Accordingly, ITU-D strategic objectives foster the creation of an enabling environment and build capacities at national, regional, and global level aimed at promoting the growth of ICT entrepreneurship, start-ups, and increased innovation in the ICT ecosystem, while encouraging empowerment of young men and women and creating new opportunities for them in the ICT sector.
