Dear Visionary,

We are pleased to invite you to participate and sponsor the DST-FICCI Global R & D Summit 2019, scheduled on February 21-22, 2019 at Marriott, Hyderabad.

The Global R&D Summit organized annually is a flagship event of FICCI, focused on the emerging areas of science and technology developments around the world, inviting collaboration from our stakeholders. Each year the Summit builds a thematic track around which various discussions and deliberations takes place involving world-renowned speakers and an eclectic mix of audience.

The focus of the 2019 Global R&D Summit is on India-Africa collaboration and the theme is “International Collaboration in Research and Development for Sustainable Growth”. This is in line with the vision of our Hon’ble Prime Minister to share our science, technology and innovation with Africa for shared prosperity. FICCI helped nurture and build deep grassroots connect with hundreds of top researchers/entrepreneurs across Africa who now understand technology innovation and commercialization. This has established a good working relationship with more than 45 African countries.  We expect to host close to 15 S&T Ministers and senior scientists from the partnering African countries.

The summit will act as a unique catalyst to accelerate the involvement of public and private sector developments in the area of innovation, research and development, with an emphasis on cutting edge technologies – exchanging ideas, expounding on research areas, detailing on the business opportunities, companies and government agencies introducing their offerings. The summit attendees shall include, policy makers, scientists, engineers, technology visionaries, corporate leaders, academicians from India and Africa, with facilities to conduct business discussions.
