The Future of Post-COVID Innovation Finance – Global Innovation Index 2020/2021

Virtual, Switzerland
May 3, 2021

While the topic of leveraging Science, Technology and Innovation to attain the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has received significant consideration, the cyclical and structural effects on how to finance innovation, and the innovative approaches of countries on how to overcome these challenges, have not received sufficient attention. This event will contribute to overcoming this gap. Discussions will focus on the current and new challenges of financing innovation as they result from the current pandemic crisis.

The Eastern Europe and the South Caucasus (EESC) sub-region (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine) has considerable potential for sustainable growth and development.
