Are you one of the world’s top tech or science innovators?


The first edition of the “Bringing tech&science closer to people” initiative has launched, seeking to showcase the top tech and science innovators and entrepreneurs from around the world.

Launched under the auspices of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), the Closer to People campaign hopes to crowdsource the world’s most innovative projects in the areas of transport and mobility; IoT and IoE; virtual reality; communication technologies; electronics; fintech; life sciences and healthcare; energy and fuels; new materials and manufacturing; and security.

250 of the top submitted projects from around the world will be published via the Closer to People portal, following which a three-month campaign will see the projects promoted across the world via a series of digital events.

The selected innovations will also be showcased directly to industry organisations, chambers of commerce, investors, accelerators, and more.

“The goal is to support easier knowledge exchange and build a network of doers and makers, where top-notch innovative projects from all over the world are boosted with ideas, cooperation proposals, and business offers,” said Katarzyna Janocha, coordinator of the Closer to People campaign.

“For tech owners, participation in the campaign is a way to get the international recognition of their work and accomplishments but above all, to gain new opportunities for their project development or commercialization.”

Submissions are open here, until December 31.
