The UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement of the Climate Change Conference were agreed in late 2015. While there is consensus around the important role of technological innovation to meet these goals, there is much less clarity about what is to be done by actors engaged at different levels and with different capabilities and resources.

Over the past 4 years, the Project on Innovation and Access to Technology for Sustainable Development organised a multidisciplinary network of over 30 international researchers across a wide range of academic institutions and think tanks to study how to harness the contribution of technological innovation to meet sustainable development objectives.

The objective of this conference is thus to explore what is to be done to make technological innovation work better for sustainable development. Sessions will cover experiences across a range of sectors (water, energy, health, agriculture and manufacturing).
