Diversity is important for SIF. We are looking for participants from all over the world and from any possible interest group, be it industry, civil society, academia, the technical community or governments. Another important aspect is the gender balance.
We especially welcome suggestions for participants from low- and middle-income countries. In previous SIFs around half of the participants came from these countries. This is the ratio that we are aiming for this year as well. To make this possible, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) will fund travel costs and accommodation for participants from low and middle income countries. A global, inclusive, open and transparent debate is the only way forward.
Nomination period for this years SIF is now closed
