Calling the students all researchers, and solution-seekers! Brace yourselves for an extraordinary event that paves the path to a sustainable future. Join us for the SDG Research Fair, a highlight of the AIT Sustainability EXPO, where groundbreaking research and innovative solutions will take center stage. This fair is organized as part of the AIT Sustainability EXPO, an institute-wide event from August 23–25, 2023, along with Research workshops by AIT Centers, Inter-university Hackathon, and many other events.

At the SDG Research Fair, you will step into the spotlight to showcase your research findings and amplify your impact. Sharpen your presentation and communication skills as you captivate an audience hungry for transformative ideas. This is your chance to be recognized, celebrated, and propelled toward greatness. And, by bringing together diverse perspectives and expertise, this event will foster interdisciplinary dialogue and encourage the exchange of ideas. From climate change mitigation and biodiversity conservation to poverty alleviation and inclusive education, the SDG Research Fair will highlight the multidimensional nature of the SDGs and the interconnectedness of their targets.

Prepare to unlock the power of collaboration as the fair also includes interactive sessions where attendees can engage in meaningful conversations, share experiences, and learn from one another’s successes and challenges. Through this collaborative environment, attendees will gain valuable insights, forge new connections, and enhance their own research endeavors. This is also substantiated by studies showing that participation in research fairs positively impacts students’ academic and professional development, increasing their confidence, critical thinking abilities, and research skills.

The SDG Research Fair is not just about presenting research; it’s about driving real change and making a tangible impact on the SDGs. The fair will go beyond showcasing academic work by emphasizing the practical applications and potential scalability of research findings. Participants will be encouraged to explore ways to translate their research into actionable projects, policies, and initiatives that contribute to sustainable development. This is your chance to create a ripple effect that resonates at the local, regional, and global levels.
