Sustainable Development Goals in the COVID-19 Era: The Role of Science, Technology and Innovation

As the world is dealing with one of the most challenging periods in modern times, it is evident that Science, Technology, and Innovation (STI) is the key to providing critical and indispensable tools to help overcome the current situation, as well as to prepare ourselves against – or even prevent – future pandemics.​

This online conference will analyze and review the current scientific knowledge and understanding of the COVID-19 pandemic, explore both existing and innovative measures to effectively respond to the disease, discuss the challenges and opportunities offered by STI to advance the SDGs given major disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and look toward the future of STI cooperation in the post-COVID-19 world in a way that can enhance global pandemic preparedness.

Heide Hackmann will chair the session ‘Rethinking Global STI Cooperation post-COVID-19, What are the next steps?‘ on 15 May, 10:40 am.

This panel will pose pathways for the restructuring of global STI cooperation post-COVID-19 and examine the challenges and opportunities for increasing global research cooperation as the world readjusts to a post-COVID-19 system.
