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 8 thematic clusters (Agroecology for sustainable food systems, Circular economy and the role of Industry 4.0, Energy positive communities, Sustainable technology for low-income communities, Urban electric mobility, Smart water, Urban design and sustainable building and Waste water as a resource) 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.
