3: ROUND TABLE (PLENARY ROOM) – ADVANCING SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION FOR SDGS

This session will explore actions for advancing science, technology, and innovation to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs). The challenge for advancing Science, Technology & Innovation is that SDGs will not be achieved without disruptive and radical measures across these three areas but they can also be at the root of exclusion, increase inequalities and generate negative externalities. It is essential we harness the benefits for all. To be able to move in the right direction, there is a need for integrated assessments, roadmaps, system analyses, and holistic approaches. The SDGs will not be achieved without disruptive and radical measures but is essential that nobody gets left behind.

This roundtable will take place in Spanish, helped with translation.
