    The UNU Maastricht Economic and Social Research Institute on Innovation and Technology (UNU-MERIT) will host the event series, “Science, Innovation, Technology, and Entrepreneurship for Societal Welfare (SITE4Society)”. The objective of this workshop series is to initiate dialogue between students, researchers, and other community stakeholders of Maastricht’s innovation ecosystem.

    In this event series, academics and other local actors working on commercial applications will present their work, and explain the science and technology that make up their innovation. They will also present any puzzles that may be worth studying by the academic community. The focus will be on technologies and innovations that contribute to inclusive economic development — whether they improve the quality of our lives, empower marginalised groups, preserve the environment, or mitigate climate change.

    For more information, or to register, see the event announcement on the SITE4Society website.
