Focus of the Research Fair: Research and innovation are considered important factors in reducing poverty and global risks and securing global public goods in the context of sustainable development. SDC and KFPE are jointly organising a Research Fair to provide an opportunity for exchange and dialogue between science, policy, and practice.
Researchers from Swiss institutions and their international partners will showcase innovative findings, processes and products. A wide range of academic disciplines will be represented.
There will be 4 stands thematically clustered around the following themes: «Sustainable ecosystems management», «Social well-being and quality of life», «Inclusive political, social, economic participation» and «Technological innovation».
Each stand will showcase several projects and present promising research results as well as technological or social innovations, with experts on site for further explanation and in-depth discussions.
Dialogue on emerging issues:
To deepen the exchange between researchers and practitioners in international cooperation, 3 workshops will be organised. In the light of emerging issues related to global challenges, participants will discuss how exchange and collaboration between practitioners and researchers can be enhanced to generate innovation and foster the implementation of research results.
