G-STIC CONFERENCE DURING WORLD EXPO IN DUBAI: OCTOBER 2021 AND JANUARY 2022
Sustainably shaping a post-pandemic world
World Expo is focused on knowledge and technologies that are crucial to achieving the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. It was therefore the perfect setting for holding the fifth G-STIC Conference, the first one to take place outside of Brussels (Belgium).
The G-STIC Conference in Dubai consisted of two parts. The first part took place on the occasion of the 76th United Nations Day from 24 – 27 October 2021. The second part of the G-STIC Conference took place during the Global Goals Week from 17 – 19 January 2022.
We were delighted to welcome 390 speakers and lay on 71 sessions, 4 workshops and 4 innovation tours. Among the many esteemed speakers, we had the honour of receiving H.E. Lazarus Chakwera, President of Malawi, who used his keynote address to emphasise that technology and innovation are key enablers to curbing global challenges such as climate change. Read more >
