Closing Session

Back to the agenda


During the closing session of the eConvention, the corporate members of the GTI Observatory will step in to give their considerations on the event and the Observatory Report. In particular, innovation providers will offer their view on the challenges and technological solutions identified, with a specific focus on what they expect from regulators and policymakers in order to boost their ability to invest and develop green projects for the islands.

Their recommendations on what is needed to allow the private sector to broaden its actions and maximize islands’ potential in the global push to decarbonization will inform the next GTI Observatory Summit in Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, in February 2023.

The Summit, which will be announced during the session, is a high-level meeting of the two leading bodies of the GTI Observatory – the Strategy Scientific Committee and the Island Advisory Committee, formed by key international institutions at scientific and representation levels for the islands – to monitor and discuss the most important aspects for islands’ self-sufficiency every year.
