23.10.2019 - Knowledge for Sustainable Development: the Research-Policy Nexus - 19th Global Development Conference in Bonn

The Global Development Network (GDN) is hosting its 19th global development conference to facilitate the research-policy interface in pursuit of the SDGs. DEval supports GDN as a local partner in organizing the conference.


Four interrelated conference themes will be discussed:

– From research to sustainable development action: interdisciplinary research, knowledge sharing, evidence brokering

– The global and shared challenges of sustainable development: migration, climate change, health, etc.

– Next frontier challenges: Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, digital transformation

– Greater local ownership and sustainability: implications for research policies and funding

The program will last two-and-a-half days, during which each of the themes will be discussed in 90-minute plenaries, followed by a discussion of subthemes selected through competitive calls. Other features will include special keynotes, awards, essay competitions, posters, and side events.


23-25 October 2019


The conference will be held in Bonn, Germany. The venue of the conference will be announced shortly.
