Collaboration in Translational Research for a Sustainable Future

Scheduled for Kish Island on October 19-21, 2018, the Forum sets out to craft a way forward for translational research to promote innovation and solutions in support of prosperity and a sustainable future. Today, countries in the Middle East devote significant effort to research and innovation but, in contrast to the EU, their agendas are fragmented, and mostly with limited impact on key societal issues. At focus here is working out common initiatives to enable universities, researchers and key stakeholders in the two regions to engage in effective collaboration in support of future prosperity and sustainable development. Part of the task has to do with strategy how to build a joint platform for addressing climate change, the restoration of ecosystems, resilient and dynamic cities, sound governance and the engagement of people in support of sustainable lifestyle and a circular economy. Meanwhile, in-depth discussions will aim to lay the basis for cross-border match making of research and innovation activities in four areas; urban Issues and solutions, water, renewable energy, and non-communicable disease (NCDs).
