CIS@HARVARD provides a unique opportunity to bring together stakeholders from academia, government, international agencies, NGOs, non-profits, and social entrepreneurs to explore and share practical, evidence-based solutions to some of the world’s most pressing contemporary challenges. The theme driving the 2017 summit is Innovation, Inspiration, and Hope in a VUCA World.
The summit program is comprised of keynote speeches, interactive workshops, panel discussions, oral and poster presentations, and opportunities for networking with a diverse group of global professionals who care deeply about the world’s most pressing challenges. Join fellow problem solvers at Harvard in engaging discussions on how to foster innovation, inspiration, and hope in this so-called VUCA world!
