STAR-TIDES: Sharing To Accelerate Research – Transformative Innovation for Development and Emergency Support

About this event

The STAR-TIDES global knowledge-sharing network will have its 15th annual technology demonstration at Mason from October 18-20, 2021. This is a completely virtual event via Zoom. Registration for attendees is free, though donations are always welcome.

STAR-TIDES (Sharing To Accelerate Research – Transformative Innovation for Development and Emergency Support) is coordinated through George Mason University’s Center for Resilient and Sustainable Communities (C-RASC). It brings together several thousand members with a focus on building sustainable resilience, promoting human security, and creating life-changing social and economic activities. The overall theme of this year’s capabilities demonstration will be building sustainable resilience while promoting United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

There will be five two-hour webinars spread out over the three days. Each two-hour block will include a mix of presentations and panel discussions. They will focus on STAR-TIDES core platforms (energy, housing and infrastructure, water, agriculture, information and communications technology, and public health), as well as other areas such as logistics and creating digital opportunities. After registration and closer to the event date, participants will receive a program book with access links and passcodes.
