5 - 6 December 2019

Salle XII, Palais des Nations, Geneva

The substantive segment of the team of Specialists session will be dedicated to the topic “Smart and sustainable cities: the role of governance and innovation policy”. Policy makers and representatives of cities, business, civil society and academia will share experiences from the ECE region on how to promote innovation in an urban context, how innovation can help solve sustainability challenges in cities, how to run cities in innovative ways so that technology benefits everyone and citizens can participate actively, and on what policy makers at all levels can do to facilitate the transition to smart sustainable cities. 

The second day of the Team of Specialists session will feature inter alia discussions on high-level innovation policy principles for sustainable development and on UNECE’s first pilot sub-regional innovation policy index.
