Tech4Dev 2018: Call for Sessions and Papers

The Cooperation and Development Center (CoDev) of EPFL is now receiving applications to organize events, host thematic discussion sessions, and submit papers for the 2018 Tech 4 Dev conference which will take place 27 - 29 June in Switzerland at the EPFL campus. Tech4Dev brings together academics, representatives of the private sector, NGOs, and others to discuss pressing economic and social development challenges - and the innovative solutions being applied around the world to solve them. Attending this conference is a rich, inspiring experience, not least due to the participation of hundreds of young development leaders. As in past years, the core thematic areas will be: technologies for humanitarian action, medical technologies, science and technology for disaster risk reduction, technologies for sustainable access to energy, ICT for development, and technologies for sustainable habitat and cities. The deadline for submitting an application is 30 September.
