The global pursuit of the sustainable development goals goes hand in hand with the fourth industrial revolution and digital transformation. In this project, UNOVA partnered with a pioneering innovation business focused on using technology to enhance their delivery of essential services. Despite the urgency and relevance of digital strategies in the context of the global pandemic, many businesses continue to struggle with the transition.
This project demonstrates UNOVA’s role as a platform for knowledge-sharing and capacity building for digital transformation, and the importance of establishing multi-sector partnerships to address grand challenges. Advocating for the enhanced use of digital technologies in business could fast-track the achievement of goals, by taking an ecosystems approach. The key activities of this project include skills and capacity building and creating the enabling environment for innovation and digital inclusion. These, combined with key partnerships, target known barriers to digital transformation, including unclear roles of engagement and gaps in innovation and soft infrastructure.
