One thought on “Applications open for ISOC Fellowships to OECD Technology Foresight Forum

  1. I would have wished to apply for Fellowships to OECD Technology Foresight Forum. Why lock out folks above 40 years, yet we are mentoring the young lads as well as a persion.

    Does it meean therefore that we shall remain only passive members yet the young ones need mentorship, training and guidance from epxereinced persons like us?
