Fostering Innovation


Since the beginning of his term, the Secretary-General has highlighted the need for the UN to embrace innovation and new technologies to help achieve the SDGs and called special attention to the importance of fostering innovation during the first regular session of the CEB in 2018. Building an architecture to promote innovation, activating innovation partnerships and creating a culture of innovation were identified as three core elements for this.

The UN Innovation Network is hosting a series of webinars to explore each recommendation in more detail and outline concrete next steps UN Agencies might wish to take to promote more innovation.
