The 1st International Summit of the Triple Helix Association (THA) will be held on 4th-6th April, 2017 at the University of Nairobi, Kenya. The theme of this THA international conference is āAccelerating the Attainment of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Through ICT and Dataā. https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/topics/sustainabledevelopmentgoals
We invite all participants to embrace the Quadra Helix approach, and discuss the global challenges from a Multistakeholder perspective. We particularly welcome contributions that are multidisciplinary, addressing the complexity of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), proposing how ICT and Data can drive efforts to achieve these SDGs, and what role should play governments, industry, universities and civil society organisations (The Quadra Helix).
Presenters are encouraged to submit brief abstract on ground breaking innovations, research and best practices in Health, Education, Environment and ICT & Data that can turn around the pace of attaining the SDGs. All abstracts and innovation and best practice cases will be double blind peer reviewed. Authors of accepted abstracts and cases will be invited to present their work at the Summit and abstracts and cases will be included in the programme subject to successful registration of the participating authors. Accepted abstracts and cases will be published in the conference proceedings that will be made available on the www.triplehelixsummit.org.
