How Can the Global Science Enterprise Effectively Respond to Sustainable Development Goals?

Friday, February 17, 2017: 10:30 AM-11:30 AM
Room 208 (Hynes Convention Center)
Response to the United Nations’ 17 SDGs requires science, technology, and innovation (STI) experience and knowledge. In this workshop, global players in STI -- including individuals from funding agencies, public and private sectors, and international entities in advanced and emerging countries -- share recent achievements and potential solutions for SDGs, and seek opportunities for partnership beyond boundaries such as disciplines, organizations, and countries to work collaboratively on addressing SDGs. This workshop is intended to trigger the development of a multilateral STI network looking toward the future of SDG solutions.
