Global Science, Technology and Innovation Conference (G-STIC) is a series of conferences that aim to accelerate the development, dissemination and deployment of technological innovations that enable the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 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.
This year (2018) G-STIC is launching a Student & Research Challenges to encourage students, PhD students and junior researchers worldwide to come up with original and innovative ideas on new technological solutions that hold great potential for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Below is the link to get more information on the G-STIC 2018 challenges.
