Global Partners Research Forum: Sustainable Future in Focus

Collaborations and the open exchange of ideas are the only way to make progress towards our common goals. In 2018, IU became a founding member of the U.S. chapter of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), an alliance of U.S. universities working together to create global sustainable societies.

This year, IU and four international partner universities across the world are joining forces to delve into the issues surrounding UN Sustainable Development Goal 10: Reduce inequalities within and among countries.

Each institution will host parallel research poster competitions and choose their own winners. Then we will come together for an online forum where all participants are invited to discuss their research and ideas. Selected winning students from each institution will be asked to present their posters.
