The inno4sd.net symposium event “Policies and partnership for the sustainable development transition” will take place in Brussels on November 7-9, 2018.
The event is organised by the Innovation for Sustainable Development Network (inno4sd), in collaboration with Future Earth and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network.
High-level dialogue on Science, Technology and Innovation
On 7 November, a high-level dialogue will be held in the European Parliament on the topic of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the role of Research, Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) for achieving them. This half-a-day will contain a parliamentary debate around monitoring progress towards the SDGs and the role of innovation. During this event a global initiative on knowledge, learning and solutions based on science, research, technology and innovation for SDGs will be launched.
The topic of inno4sd’s policy-science symposium (8-9 November) is the role of science, technology and innovation (STI) for achieving the SDGs. A central element in the multi-stakeholder dialogue is on lessons learned and the role of transformational and mission oriented innovation policies and roadmaps supporting action oriented solutions and communities of practices stimulating innovation for SDGs. The programme is organised around brief presentation of examples, and a large amount of dialogue, debates and discussions.
The programme may be preceded by a visit to a living lab for smart city solutions (tbc; international guests only). An option for a city tour in Brussels may be offered to international guests.
More details and a draft agenda will be available shortly. Attendance at the symposium is by invitation only; if you would like more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
