6 & 7 November 2019 | London
This workshop aimed to define and develop a detailed understanding of how specific areas of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) may contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Low and Middle-Income Country contexts. The workshop was attended by international experts from academia, policy and practice, representing diverse regions, organisations, disciplines, SDGs, and demographics, including the members of the project’s Advisory Committee, and project partners. The workshop comprised four main sessions:
- An interactive discussion in groups on how to steer STI investment and processes towards the SDGs
- A practical exercise to map which STI areas will have a positive/negative influence in achieving different SDG targets
- A session to co-design the engagement plan
- An open discussion which began with a presentation from Jeffery Sachs
