G7 Think Tank Summit

On May 5 Rome will host the Think Tank Summit (T7), an engagement group that will involve top representatives and experts from think tanks of G7 and selected African countries.

The panel discussion will be based on three sessions, devoted to key issues related to the Agenda 2030: Food Security, Innovation and Mobility. The three issues will be addressed within the framework of the broader international agenda, with proper attention paid to cross-over themes such as security concerns, demographic trends, women’s empowerment, cities and infrastructures.

The meeting is organized by ISPI, Italy’s main forum for debate on international affairs. It promotes international conferences with outstanding personalities from all over the world, think-tank meetings and other seminars.
