WSIS prize 2018 now up for grabs, deadline January 2

The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) has continued to grow and develop towards the WSIS Forum 2018, with WSIS prize now up for grabs until January 2, reports ITRealms.

The prize, ITRealms gathered would form part of the 2018 WSIS Forum slated to hold in Geneva, Switzerland from 19-23 March 2018.

Vladimir Stankovic of WSIS, CSD, International Telecommunication Union (ITU) said that the annual Forum serves as a platform to discuss how information and communication technologies (ICTs) can accelerate progress on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

The Forum hosted by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and co-organized by ITU, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP); provides an opportunity to exchange information and share best practices. It represents the world’s largest annual gathering of the ‘ICT for development’ community.

The annual WSIS Prizes have emerged as a popular and integral part of the WSIS stocktaking process, because they recognize individuals, governments, civil society, local, regional and international agencies, research institutions and private-sector companies for their success in leveraging the power of ICTs as an enabler of development.

ITRealms further reports that deadline for submission of applications is January 2, 2018.
