As IKDER and Faculty of Economics, we are pleased to invite you to the 3rd International Summit of Istanbul Economists which has a theme titled "Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Economic Development" to discuss current issues in a scientific environment.
About 40 years ago, a process of transformation and change has begun on a global scale in all areas of social life including the economy. In the new era, entrepreneurial and innovative spirit of national economies has a vital importance in achieving adaptation to the global economy and derivation of competitiveness and socio-economic development. In the post-globalized world, roles of entrepreneurship, SMEs, technological development and innovation in international economic competition and socio-economic development have become a noteworthy issue by internationalization of the economies and markets firstly in developed countries and then developing and least developed countries. Today, policies to encourage entrepreneurship and innovation and to remove barriers to them are increasingly applied. Hence, the importance of the subject requires special attention.
