Projectii2030: Inclusive Innovation Tour & Factory

Project background

On October 18-19, ii2030 will bring together innovators from corporates, startups, the public sector, NGOs and science to create solutions for a more inclusive society by 2030.

ii2030 is an interactive, highly curated event that will employ cutting-edge technology as the engine to manufacture disruptive solutions for tomorrow’s biggest challenges to inclusion. The event will bring together leading innovators from corporates, startups, the public sector, NGOs and science to co-create solutions to achieve a more inclusive society by 2030.

How can we..

  • deliver basic goods and services to remote areas using drones?
  • increase smallholder yields through remote sensing?
  • source data on low-income markets through artificial intelligence?
  • use deep learning to transform diagnoses and treatment in healthcare?
  • ensure sustainable consumption & production processes with blockchain?
  • leverage blockchain technology to enable entrepreneurs to access global markets?

ii2030 will be hosted by Endeva in collaboration with IB Accelerator, the Inclusive Business Action Network and IXDS.

Project objective

ii2030 will foster mutual learning, as well as the creation of valuable partnerships to enhance and share knowledge. This will be a first step in exploring not only why challenges to inclusion exist, but also how we can apply cutting-edge technology to build ground-breaking solutions for a more inclusive world.

ii2030 will take participants through an inspiring and immersive two-day journey:

Inclusive Innovation Tour: October 18, 2017, all over Berlin

Several tour guides will take participants on an exploration of Berlin’s buzzing inclusive innovation scene to provide inspiration and information around the ii2030 challenges.

Inclusive Innovation Factory: October 19, 2017, Neue Mälzerei, Berlin

The Factory is all about manufacturing solutions through cross-sector collaboration. In co-creation workshops of up to 10 participants, we will work out how technology can drive inclusive innovation, and what is needed to realize solutions. Participants are carefully selected to bring together those actors who can make the change - and only those.

A networking assembly line, factory whistle speeches and a canteen exhibition will allow participants to get inspired and connect outside their workshop.

Project result

ii2030 will take place in Berlin on October 18-19, 2017.
