Special event

where science, technology and innovation meet the humanity to transform the world

On September 25th 2015, Member States of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda, a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. Its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets will stimulate action over the next fifteen years in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet, to shift us onto a more sustainable and resilient path. This is a collective journey for all, a transformation from agenda-setting to implementation.

NOVUS Summit aims to unite the science, technology and innovation community around the world and channel their brain power towards the much-needed actionable changes and scalable solutions. NOVUS 2016 will showcase 17 voices of positive change at the United Nations General Assembly Hall. It will be a highly immersive experience, an intergenerational platform to inspire all to unite in action and be the change the world needs to see.
