Zetech to host Conference on Sustainability Agenda
Zetech University will this September host academic and industry experts in a Sustainable Innovations Conference focused on the role of public and private sector in advancing Kenya’s sustainability agenda. In the wake of the big four agenda, data driven solutions produced by universities and professionals will have direct impact on the sustainability.
Now in its second year, the University research conference brings together academic and industry professionals working on ground breaking research to address national challenges. This year, the seminar will provide a platform to discuss current and future innovations centered on the attainment of UN Sustainable development goals, EU Agenda 2063 and Kenya Vision 2030 and how they will impact business models, services, technologies and livelihoods. Additionally, the Varsity believes that the results will not only inform sustainability but also allow educationists to review the most marketable courses in Kenya that will meet this need.
Commenting on the two-day conference, Dr. Alice Njuguna, Deputy Vice Chancellor in charge of Academics, Research and Extension noted that the panel of experts will review refereed papers, working papers, practitioner papers, case studies, and engage in exhibitions and interactive sessions to deliberate on the theme.
“We are determined to engage learned minds to generate solutions towards our sustainability endevours as a Country. The benefits of attending the innovation conference includes access to a forum for new ideas and concepts, presentations by international researchers, practitioners and policy-makers, review of new research, results and thinking as well as the opportunity to meet leaders from business, government and academia.” said Dr. Njuguna.
She added that the event will incorporate keynote papers on topics of broad interest and appeal by distinguished researchers in the respective fields, and will cover various sub themes, including: sustainability in the transport sector, sustainable and inclusive healthcare, quality and relevant higher education for sustainable development, sustainable human settlements and urbanisation as well as technopreneurship and sustainable development.
Each session will be headlined by renowned researchers in the respective areas and will be open to participants from industry and the general public with an expert panel discussing papers presented at the end of the conference.
