The 2nd Multisectoral Conference, scheduled from 23rd to 26th May 2023, will be held at the Safari Park Hotel, Nairobi. The conference aims to facilitate a multifaceted forum of national and international discourse to deliberate, network, partner, share experiences and resolve how best to deploy ST&I for the prosperity of humanity. The conference will accentuate a technology-driven, innovation-led, inclusive, sustainable development agenda.
The multi-faceted Conference forum will comprise an inter-ministerial High-Level Dialogue on “Infusion of STI into National Production and Security Systems”, scientific and technological discourse on “ST&I in Leadership and Diplomacy in transformational Digital Economy”; Science, Technology and Innovation Exhibitions and Science and Technology Education Week.
NRF has invested heavily in research capacity building, multidisciplinary research, Bilateral and Multi-lateral research programmes, and research infrastructure to enhance the sustainable development agenda. To showcase the various achievements and research outputs, NRF will hold parallel research dissemination workshops and exhibitions under the auspices of this conference. This parallel session will provide a platform for the Principal Investigators funded by NRF to present on thematic issues focusing on research outputs, outcomes and products.
This unique dissemination opportunity will demonstrate how research and innovation can be translated into practical applications that benefit industries and society, inform decision-making, improve practices and promote public understanding of scientific issues leading to economic growth.
