Global Science Technology & Innovation Conferences (G-STIC)

October 23, 2017 - October 25, 2017

G-STIC 2017 focuses on integrated technological solutions that potentially have a large impact on the achievement of the SDGs and climate change goals. The activities in G-STIC 2017 are organized and structured in 10 thematic areas, including 6 thematic clusters and 4 cross-cutting themes addressing aspects that are of global importance to the thematic clusters.

8 thematic clusters:

  • Agriculture & Food
  • Circular Economy
  • Energy Positive Communities
  • Sustainable Technology & Development
  • Urban Electric Mobility
  • Urban Design and Sustainable Building
  • Waste Water as a Resource
  • Smart Water

Four cross-cutting themes:

  • climate-smart technology
  • ICT as enabling technology
  • gender mainstreaming
  • youth engagement

For each of the individual themes that will be part of G-STIC 2017, 5 distinct approaches will help accelerate the development, dissemination and deployment of sustainable technologies:

  • Identifying globally relevant emerging technological innovations
  • Reviewing science, technology & innovation relevant to sustainable development
  • Promoting collaboration among science, technology and innovation communities
  • Translating cutting-edge technology research into actionable agenda items for sustainable development
  • Facilitating co-creation processes and open innovation labs

Each of the 12 themes will be managed by a dedicated team. With a clear intention to foster co-creation practices, all teams will invest in the buildup of international learning networks and dynamic communities of committed practitioners – as part of a process to define and develop an impact strategy.
