G-STIC is focused on building knowledge bases and global expert networks to support the technological transitions that are needed for the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development.
Building on the G-STIC 2017 key findings and aiming to break down barriers between sectors, G-STIC 2018 will focus on 3 elements.
Identify key policy changes needed for a transition towards sutainability
G-STIC 2018 will identify key policy changes to bring to market the integrated technological solutions discussed at G-STIC 2017, and to upscale their use.
Introduce new integrated solutions
G-STIC 2018 will introduce new integrated technological solutions that have the potential to impact the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and to support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
Showcase market-ready solutions
For the first time, the 2018 edition of G-STIC will mount an eclectic exhibition to showcase some of the best market-ready technological solutions related to the themes of the G-STIC conferences.
The G-STIC Conference series will be hosted jointly by VITO (the prime research and technology organization on cleantech and sustainable development in Belgium) and its international partners ACTS (African Centre for Technology Studies), AIT (Asian Institute of Technology), FIOCRUZ (Fundação Oswaldo Cruz), IITD (Indian Institute of Technology Delhi) and TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute).
