REGISTER HERE for the Living Lab Event with inspiring presentations focusing on a multi energy smart grid, keynote speakers and matchmaking opportunities. Registration will be up until and including the 1st of November. Suppliers will be informed on their selection on the 6th of November at the latest. Selected suppliers will partake in one-to-one meetings with key decision makers from the Living Lab Owner Green Energy Park and its partners. On top of that suppliers will have the opportunity to pitch their solution on stage for all attendees.
The living lab event will be organized during G-STIC 2019, the Global Sustainable Technology & Innovation Conference at Brussels Expo. Four years after the launch of Agenda 2030 and its associated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations, there is a consensus among experts that progress is lacking. This is a clear sign. Achieving the SDGs with business-as-usual is just not possible. G-STIC aims to accelerate the transition to a wide-scale deployment of market-ready integrated technological solutions that can have a big impact on the achievement of the SDGs. Bearing this goal in mind, technological clusters that contribute to 6 societal challenges will be identified. These 6 challenges are: safe climate for all, education for all, energy for all, health for all, sustainable ocean resources and water for all. In addition, also 5 cross-cutting themes of crucial importance to the societal challenges will be addressed: circular economy, geospatial data, ICT as enabling technology, gender mainstreaming and youth engagement. This identification process will result in a living library of breakthrough transformative technologies across sectors, illustrated with best practices andinspiring examples. Captains of industry can use this library for exploring new business opportunities.
Suppliers present at the living lab have the opportunity to partake for free in the late afternoon plenary session Living the Change and the networking reception of G-STIC on the 20th of November in the evening. An ideal opportunity to connect with an international audience (> 1000 people) coming from all over the world and involved in achieving SDGs on a daily basis.
