As part of the Technology Facilitation Mechanism mandated by the 2030 Agenda and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, the annual STI Forum provides 'a venue for facilitating interaction, matchmaking and the establishment of networks between relevant stakeholders and multi-stakeholder partnerships in order to identify and examine technology needs and gaps, including with regard to scientific cooperation, innovation and capacity-building, and also in order to help facilitate development, transfer and dissemination of relevant technologies for the sustainable development goals'.
As its name indicates, the STI Forum involves a discussion and networking platform for all actors in the field of science, technology and innovation and is open to member States, UN organizations, civil society, academia, industry and private sector, as well as accredited individuals.
