The G-STIC Special Event on “Accelerating Technological Transitions Towards the SDGs” convened for a half-day on 7 June 2018 at UN Headquarters in New York, US, in the context of the UN’s third annual Multi-stakeholder Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals (STI Forum 2018). G-STIC, the Global Sustainable Technology & Innovation Conference series, is a non-governmental initiative of independent non-profit research institutes, which organizes a yearly summit in Brussels, Belgium, and various intersessional activities in the context of intergovernmental processes on technology and innovation.

The Special Event shared key outcomes from the first edition of the Conference, in 2017, as well as the third STI Forum. It also showcased examples of market-ready, integrated technological solutions for advancing the SDGs, and offered an early look at themes to be discussed at G-STIC 2018, convening in Brussels, Belgium, from 28-30 November.

The Special Event had six co-hosts: VITO, African Centre for Technology Studies, Asian Institute of Technology, FIOCRUZ, TERI and the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi.
