Over 100 researchers, students, practitioners and policy makers convened at the DCU St Patrick's campus for the DSAI Annual Conference 'Territories of Technology, Innovation and Development'. We're delighted to share recordings from the main sessions, available as resources for watchback now.
The pre-conference Panel and Networking Event on 'Research, Policy and Practice - Knowledge Partnerships for Development' was particularly well received as speakers from Irish Aid, Dóchas, NGOs, Science Foundation Ireland, Irish Research Council, Irish Universities Association Marie Sklodowska-Curie Office and Campus Engage shared practical insights on the Funding and Policy Landscape that supports research and NGO/civil society partnerships and insights from The NGO Experience and Case Examples.
Kicking off with our Opening Panel Discussion on Territories of Technology, Innovation and Development, we were then priveleged to welcome our keynote speakers who gave thought provokling and insiughtful talks - Dr Silvia Masiero, Associate Professor of Information Systems, University of Oslo on 'Unfair ID: Digital Identity from Injustice to Resistance' and Dr Samuel Ramani, Associate Fellow at Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) on 'Disinformation State: Russia's Weaponization of Narratives in Africa'.
We want to thank and acknowledge all our contributors, presenters and participants who once again made this annual conference a key platform for rich dialogue and exchange across the community of International Development scholars, NGOs and civil society organisations and policy makers in Ireland.
