Development that meets the entrepreneurship in a technology intensive context while processing of merging technology prowess and entrepreneurial talents and skills defines technopreneurial development. The ability of present to uphold this core value of technopreneurial development has so far not shown to be at a recognizable level. Research focused on value addition is therefore imperative in generating new knowledge, products, services and processes which are vital to devise new strategies to steer current resource base in order to protect, promote and to achieve key ideas of technopreneurial development. Having realized this fundamental concept in facing societal challenges in the 21st century, Uva Wellassa University has called for abstracts for its 1st International Research Symposium on the theme “Global Trends towards Technopreneurial Development”. Corresponding with the IRSUWU 2017, a Symposium dinner and cultural show has been arranged for Thursday 19th January 2017 and an optional post symposium tour has been arranged for Saturday 21st January 2017.

This massive event provides a prospect for the scientists, the industry personal and international delegates to unite and present their scientific innovations and global trends in different fields.
