The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 internationally agreed ambitious goals to move the world to a more sustainable future by 2030. Which technologies are able to achieve these SDGs?

From 23rd till 25th of October 2017, VITO is organizing the G-STIC conference in Tour&Taxis in Brussels. The goal of G-STIC is to accelerate the development, dissemination and deployment of technology innovations with significant impact on the SDGs. The focus is on integrated technological solutions working together as a “system”, rather than on stand-alone, fragmented technologies.

The themes and Exhibitor Islands are:

  • Agroecology for sustainable food systems - Exploring agro-ecological approaches to sustainable food production systems
  • Circular economy - The role of Industry 4.0 as a technological driver for the Circular Economy
  • Energy positive communities - Energy access for off-grid or poorly grid connected communities & Innovative grid connected communities
  • Sustainable technology for low-income communities - Exploring the development and delivery of life-improving innovations
  • Urban electric mobility: Urban Electric Mobility in Action – Delivering on the New Urban Agenda
  • Smart water - From data management to digital water – The water system innovation
  • Urban design and sustainable building - Building design and energy efficiency
  • Waste water as a resource - From waste water to resourceful water – the science, technology and practice transformation

For a limited number of FCA-companies active in one of these type of solutions, FCA can offer a free ticket for the conference. Priority goes to companies able to link their G-STIC presence with a contribution at the EU Cleantech Forum 2018 (14-16 May 2018 in Antwerp).

In some cases, there is an opportunity to exhibit at one of the Islands in the networking hall of G-STIC at Tour&Taxis.
