[Free Conference] Mission-oriented innovation: contributions to the construction of a new Brazilian technology and innovation policy

The National Confederation of Industry (CNI) and World-Transforming Technologies (WTT), with the support of the National Council of State Research Support Foundations (CONFAP), will hold a free conference on April 16, 2024, at the CNI in Brasilia: “Mission-Oriented Innovation: contributions to building a new Brazilian technology and innovation policy”.

The event aims to gather recommendations to support the 5th National Conference on Science, Technology and Innovation. In this Free Conference, we will discuss how the Mission-Driven Innovation approach can contribute to this construction; we will present some of the tools available for this, debate some of the challenges that must be overcome in this process, and how to build the necessary collaborations to formulate and implement a new science policy that leads to a fairer, more sustainable and developed Brazil.

The Free Conference “Mission-Oriented Innovation: contributions to the construction of a new Brazilian technological and innovation policy” will include the participation of some guests in person and will be broadcast via Youtube.

The Free CT&I Conferences are part of the structure of the different stages of the 5th National Conference on Science and Technology, which will be held by the Federal Government in June, and aims to propose recommendations for drawing up the National Strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation 2024-2030.
