The overall objective of this Expert Group Meeting on Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Roadmaps is to to cultivate a peer-learning environment, strenghten the capacities and share consensus and partnerships among developing and developed countries and the UN System on STI roadmaps, action plans and strategies.



This May EGM is not only a preparatory event for the 2018 STI Forum to initiate discussion and deepen common understanding on concepts and methodologies for developing STI Roadmaps, but also as an opportunity to inform an ambitious, yet pragmatic, global initiative to promote STI Roadmaps at scale by 2019 forum and the HLPF. The objectives are:

  • Promote and share national and international experiences on development of STI Roadmaps and related plans, building on existing national plans
  • Cooridnate the existing approaches and methodologies and establish partnerships to strengthen the capacities of stakeholders to scale up initiatives related to STI Roadmaps for the implementation of sustainable development
  • Identify pragmatic entry points for countries to formulate or strengthen national STI strategies or policy frameworks in line with the SDGs and with mechanisms to track progress toward 2030
  • Jointly develop a global work programme and identify milestone events to develop and promote STI Roadmaps in the lead up to the STI Forum in 2019 and beyond toward 2030.
