Article 12: INQUIRIUM as a knowledge partner at the Cyprus Forum 2023

INQUIRIUM and InnoEUsphere co-organized as knowledge partners the panel discussion “Innovation for a Sustainable Future: The Intersection of STEM, Circular Economy, and EU-Funded Initiatives for a Better Future” during the Cyprus Forum Event 2023.

During the panel discussion we discussed the intersections of sustainability, circular economy, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) laying particular emphasis on the role of EU-funded projects in driving change. During our panel discussion, knowledge and experiences were shared on how these fields can integrate and synergize, towards generating pioneering ideas and sparking actionable solutions for sustainable development and societal transformation. Panelists discussed successful EU-funded projects, industry, academia, and municipal good practices, that promote sustainability goals, demonstrating the transformative power of STEM innovation. Finally, the discussion underscored the potential of the circular economy as a sustainable model and highlighted how STEM education can equip the next generation to contribute to and thrive in this new landscape.
