Forum on Science, Technology, and Innovation for Sustainable Development Goals (submission deadline)

03/21/2017 - 03/22/2017

In preparation for the Forum on May 15-16, at UN Headquarters, in NY, a Global Call for Innovations is launched to find scientific and technological innovations that are helping accelerate progress towards any one or more of the six SDGs that are the focus of the STI Forum 2017. The Call for Innovations will highlight solutions from diverse sources and communities, originating in different parts of the world, and focus on those technologies that aim to help the poorest and most vulnerable. All innovations are welcome and will be reviewed carefully.

The Call for Innovations is part of a networking forum, developed by the United Nations (Department of Economic and Social Affairs) in collaboration with the Global Innovation Exchange. All innovations submitted can elect to join the Global Innovation Exchange, which will allow innovators to access funding opportunities, locate complementary resources to support innovation, and will help to identify where other innovators are working in the same or related fields, as competitors or potential partners.

Innovators are invited to submit their solutions through March 22, 2017.  For more information on the STI Forum click here.
