Our mission is to inspire, empower, and connect people to change the world.
That mission begins with the International Innovation Conference (IIC).
But it extends to all our member-states. Learn more about the IIC below.
Understanding the IIC
The Agency and the Alliance use the opportunity of their annual General Assemblies to organize the IIC. The first IIC will be held in Dubai [ dates to be announced ] where members of the Nektar Business Consortium will present their organisations, their plans and their accomplishments in support of the initiatives in front of other members and the Ministers of our member-states.
During the 2023 Dubai IIC, Member-States will announce the list of SDG Ventures that have been selected to be deployed on their territories in partnership with the Alliance.
Presented by Dr Gilles Klein,
Founding Secretary General of the Alliance
The IIC will engage our members and foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and international SDG agendas.
IIC OPEN EVENT
For the general public, we will host an Open Event to encourage dialogue on which ideas, thoughts and questions can be expressed and tackled in an open environment. Participants will be able to debate and interact on controversial issues around improving the state of the world. For that purpose, we welcome a diverse public to listen, participate and share thoughts and experiences.
This year the theme of the Open Event will be:
“The impact of Material, Ideological and Geopolitical power on International Organizations and self-funded and self-sustaining International Organizations”
The Open Event will be hosted by independent professors who will act as guardians of the impartiality of the event theme. The Open Event will bring discussions on issues ranging from current supranational structures and economical concerns to leadership challenges, universal access to education and sports, the role of arts in society and will end with an evening gala, a fundraiser event and much more.
