Three excellent reasons to join G-STIC 2018

Conference that connects technology and SDGs 

G-STIC 2018 aims to accelerate the development, dissemination, and deployment of technology innovations that enable the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Focused on integrated technological solutions that impact the SDGs, G-STIC 2018 provides a unique opportunity to join the global technological innovation community that is devoted to enabling transitions to less carbon and resource-intensive economic development models.

#1 Discover new routes to reach the SDGs

G-STIC 2018 is the place for high-level interactions between industry delegates, technology developers, researchers, socio-economic actors and policy makers, across industries and governmental departments. With a clear purpose to connect technological innovation to policy making for sustainability, G-STIC 2018 encourages you to discuss and work with government representatives from all over the world, discovering new routes to reach the SDGs and exploring how to develop them.

#2 Help define and deploy the technologies of the future

Diving deeper into integrated technological solutions that impact the SDGs, G-STIC 2018 will focus on strengthening multi-stakeholder communities around 7 thematic clusters & 6 cross-cutting themes. With a clear intention to define and develop an impact strategy, G-STIC 2018 will discuss the technologies that are needed in each of those areas to accelerate transitions to more sustainable production and consumption processes.

#3 Help shape new markets and accelerate opportunities

G-STIC 2017 highlighted that, to realise and accelerate opportunities for integrated technological solutions, it is vital to work across sectors, to promote new business models and value chains, to demonstrate how the combination of integrated solutions and business models works, and to rethink local, national and global policy making. G-STIC 2018 takes a new leap forward, discussing the policy actions that are needed to upscale the use of technologies, innovations, and practices in different regions of the world.
