G-STIC 2017 provides a unique chance to discover opportunities for technology innovations that enable the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. This conference is entirely focused on integrated technological solutions for a transition to less resource-intensive economic development models.
G-STIC 2017 is the first in a series of Global Science, Technology and Innovation Conferences. G-STIC is all about integrated technological solutions that potentially have a large impact on the achievement of the SDGs and climate change goals, and that contribute to a systemic change. In addition to the plenary sessions, G-STIC 2017 activities will be structured in 6 thematic clusters (Agriculture & food, Circular economy, Energy, Sustainable technology & development, Urbanisation and Water) and 4 cross-cutting themes (Climate-smart technology, ICT as enabling technology, Gender mainstreaming and Youth engagement).MORE ABOUT THE THEMES
G-STIC approaches the required technological innovations from a user perspective and takes into consideration the regulatory environment needed to introduce these integrated solutions, as well as the need for regional differentiation. The goal of G-STIC is to accelerate the development, dissemination, and deployment of integrated technological solutions that are feasible, acceptable and affordable from an economic and social point of view.
Within each cluster and theme, our speakers will inspire you to think outside the box on how to create win-win solutions for local, regional and national problems using state-of-the-art technologies.
