ICIT 2020 aims to bring together those innovators and technologists who drive IR4.0 forward, now and in the future. Innovators challenge the status quo rather than merely accepting, and entrepreneurs provide the impetus to make ideas a reality. The synergy of innovators and entrepreneurs as technopreneurs results in the dynamic empowerment of learners, educators and industry leaders, creating partnerships and providing the driving force in the era of IR4.0. This is a time for world change and this conference is the launch pad for world changers to both embrace IR4.0 and take it to the next level in the future.

Whether it be industry, digital or social business, health and life sciences, education or sustainable development, if you are technologically savvy, creative, both inspired and inspiring and looking for a platform to share or launch your innovations, this conference is the right place for you. As a technopreneur, you are not afraid to take calculated risks and you do not fear failure. You have a vision and maybe even a business plan to carry your vision forward. Working in teams, technopreneurs maximise resources and exploit every opportunity to generate business profits. These are exciting times and ICIT 2020 is an exciting event, bringing together technopreneurs from around the globe to share and discuss ideas and develop partnerships to build a better, brighter, more sustainable and technologically advanced future.

Abiding by the respective national health advisory due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and as part of our ongoing efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of our community, the Conference will now be a virtual event.
