Believe In Your Ideas
An entrepreneurship event for female students
Join us April 24th, 2019 in Copenhagen for a one-day conference: ‘PeaceTech: A New Field to Explore’, and engage with tech-companies, NGOs, and research institutions to explore the many opportunities of this exciting, but still unexplored “industry”!
At the conference, experts, practitioners, and social tech entrepreneurs will walk us through the current trends on how the strategic use of technology can accelerate, improve and scale conflict prevention and peacebuilding efforts, providing major gains and innovation possibilities to the entrepreneurs and companies that engage in the field.
Some of the themes to be explored at the PeaceTech conference:
Innovation & Technology in UN Peacebuilding - Former General Major Ib Bager
Engineering through a Peacebuilding Lens - Jerry McCann from BuildUp
How to work with PeaceTech in real life - showcases by a number of national and international for-profit and not-for-profit organizations
How can you work with PeaceTech as a new industry/field of work?
A detailed program with workshops will be released on primo April 2019.
The different themes will underline both the entrepreneurial and innovative opportunities and obstacles. The conference brings together a wide range of stakeholders, and besides providing new insights and knowledge, there will be great opportunities for networking and building relations across academia, industry and the humanitarian sector.
