Changing directions: Steering science, technology and innovation towards the Sustainable Development Goals


Sussex Dev Lecture

When: 10 May 2023; 16:00–17:30

Where: Institute of Development Studies (IDS) Convening Space and online on Zoom

Part of the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) - Sussex Development Lecture Series

In this Sussex Development Lecture we present the results of the Steering Research and Innovation for Global Goals (STRINGS) project – a major global study into the alignment of sciences, technologies and innovations (STIs) with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We highlight glaring mismatches between ‘globally’ and ‘nationally’ mapped directions of STI development and the SDGs. Not addressing them, will undermine progress for the SDGs. We conclude by making recommendations to address these imbalances.
