IASP Nairobi registration opens with early bird rates

IASP has opened registration for its 41st World Conference, which will take place in Nairobi, Kenya. The event, on 24-27 September 2024, is designed for professionals and practitioners from science and technology parks (STPs) and areas of innovation (AOIs) globally, providing a platform to discuss the impact of changing demographics on entrepreneurship and technology.

Delegates are invited to register early to benefit from the available super early bird rates until 17th April!

Hosted by IASP member Konza Technopolis, the conference signifies the association's return to Africa for the first time since 2008. This year's theme, “Demographics, entrepreneurship and technology: Defining the frontiers of future economics,” seeks to examine the role of STPs and AOIs in regions undergoing large deomographic changes, who are facing unique challenges and opportunities due to their rapidly growing youth populations and the global trend of an ageing population.

Deadline for paper submissions: 27 March

With the conference covering 15 engaging topics, participants are encouraged to submit papers for consideration. Submissions can be made through the online submission system by 27th March, and any issues or queries can be directed to the IASP Events team for assistance.

The conference will provide a venue for professionals to exchange knowledge, discuss best practices, and explore strategies for leveraging demographic trends towards sustainable economic development. It aims to facilitate discussions on how innovation and entrepreneurship can be nurtured to address global challenges.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear from speakers and experts from around the world, contributing to a comprehensive dialogue on the conference's theme. The event is an important occasion for those involved in the management and development of STPs and AOIs to network, learn, and collaborate.
