Since its inception back in 2008, the ISIF Asia program continuous to receive an increasing number of high quality proposals and award nominations. This indicates there is a vibrant community of reliable organizations and qualified IT professionals actively engaged in Internet development at the local and regional level, supporting their communities to enjoy communications services that are reliable and affordable. This, in contrast with the limited number of recipients ISIF Asia has been able to support, puts in evidence the need to boost the research and development investment for Internet development in the Asia Pacific region.
ISIF Asia offers flexibility to allocate contributions, allowing partners and sponsors to define how their contributions will be used, across a wide range of development projects, geographical areas and activities, as well as continue offering capacity building opportunities to selected recipients.
Leading organizations support us in our objective to foster innovation and socio-economic development. ISIF Asia Partners are crucial to the success of the program. Their financial contributions and active participation in ISIF Asia committees provide valuable support not ony to the Secretariat but also to the project teams supported across the Asia Pacific region. Partners and sponsors offer their experience, advice and regional vision so we are constantly aware of innovation initiatives that will benefit from ISIF Asia funding.
Organizations and individuals are welcome to support the program through partnership and a variety of sponsorship packages. These are some of the reasons our partners and sponsors have shared with us about why they support us.
- To maintain and diversify support for Internet related research & development.
- To support research that can help Internet growth in our own economy and throughout the region.
- To facilitate networking and information building throughout the Internet community.
To acknowledge the contributions that innovators accross the Asia Pacific have done to the internet as a whole.
