CSCP at G-STIC: Global Science, Technology & Innovation Conferences, 23-25 October 2017

To limit global temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius and to achieve the ambitious SDGs, a transition is needed to more resilient economic and social development models. This will require the world-wide implementation of new technologies, and new ways of producing and consuming, which will be presented and discussed at G-STIC.

On 23-25 October 2017, the first in a series of Global Science, Technology & Innovation Conferences (G-STIC) will be held in Brussels, Belgium.

It will focus on the existing knowledge and technology, while maintaining a strong focus on implementation, results and what works. In that process, it intends to create a space for new partnerships and innovation, co-creation and co-generation for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and climate goals.

G-STIC 2017 covers 9 distinct technology themes, the CSCP will be leading the thematic area – Making ICT deliver sustainability: Co-design for sustainable lifestyles – together with GeSI and IMEC. We will be looking at how ICT can enable consumers to lead more sustainable lifestyles, and how ICT can change or support new behaviours. The sessions will build upon the knowledge and experience of the key partners, GeSI with #SystemTransformation and the #SMARTer2030 reports, Imec with their work on ICT applications in living labs, and the CSCP with their expertise on sustainable lifestyles.

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 AIT (Asian Institute of Technology), IITD (Indian Institute of Technology) and TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute).
