Conférence Partager le Savoir (12)

Notre 12ème conférence aura lieu au Globe de la science et de l’innovation – CERN à Genève du 7 au 8 juin 2019. Nous sommes heureux d’annoncer que Mme Fabiola Gianotti, Directrice Générale du CERN,  inaugurera la conférence le 7 juin. Le Prix Partager le Savoir sera décerné durant la cérémonie d’ouverture à Lionel Zinsou, ancien Premier Ministre de la République du Bénin, Président de Terra Nova et Fondateur de SouthBridge, pour son engagement constant en faveur des valeurs de la Fondation Partager le Savoir.

Notre conférence invitera des scientifiques de renom, des innovateurs, des dirigeants d’entreprise et des leaders politiques à activement réfléchir sur l’interconnexion entre science, innovation, paix et développement durable. Nous présenterons également de futurs leaders de la science et de la technologie qui s’attaquent aux grands défis du développement en Afrique et au Moyen-Orient, par la voie d’innovations scientifiques et projets inédits.

Ce programme est structuré en 5 sessions thématiques :

Pre session : Encourager la science et l’innovation pour le développement au Moyen-orient et en Afrique du Nord.

Session 1 : Contextualiser les migrations : la crise migratoire européenne, brain-drain et brain-gain

Session 2: Atteindre l’égalité des genres dans les STEM

Session 3: Défendre un accès ouvert à la technologie
