  • UN STI Forum Award

    The Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Forum is an annual stakeholder Forum that provides a venue for facilitating interaction, matchmaking and the establishment of networks between relevant stakeholders and multi-stakeholder partnerships in order to identify and examine technology needs and gaps, including with regard to scientific cooperation, innovation and capacity-building, and also in order to help facilitate development, transfer and dissemination of relevant technologies for the sustainable development goals." The STI Forum is initiated by the United Nations in collaboration with Global Innovation Exchange.


    The Forum creates a discussion and networking platform for all actors in the field of science, technology and innovation and is open to member States, UN organizations, civil society, academia, industry and private sector, as well as accredited individuals.


    Each year, the UN STI puts out a call for organisations from backgrounds that border on Science, Technology and Innovation to partake in the annual stakeholder forum.

    In June 2020, Practical Education Network was selected and verified as one of the winners who would participate in this year’s Forum. Successful applicants are also entitled to expert coaching on how to present their innovations on a global stage, an opportunity to showcase their expertise and innovations to a global audience, a networking opportunity that could potentially open up an avenue for support, as well as an opportunity to be included in public relations activities with the potential of media exposure.
