As requested by UN Member States, this Online Platform for the Technology Facilitation Mechanism (TFM) – 2030 Connect, will “establish a comprehensive mapping of, and serve as a gateway for, information on existing science, technology and innovation initiatives, mechanisms and programmes, within and beyond the United Nations,” “facilitate access to information, knowledge and experience, as well as best practices and lessons learned, on science, technology and innovation facilitation initiatives and policies” and “facilitate the dissemination of relevant open access scientific publications generated worldwide”. 2030 Connect will function as an integral part of the broader Technology Facilitation Mechanism (TFM).

Following a mandated independent technical assessment, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs’ Division for Sustainable Development Goals (DESA/DSDG) and UN OICT collaborated to organize a global design competition for 2030 Connect. Subsequently, a demo version was presented at the HLPF 2018. Following extensive stakeholder consultations, partnership building and resource mobilization, the 2030 Connect is being launched during the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, 2020 (HLPF). It will be a new starting point for feedback and support, discussing key challenges and opportunities towards the full operationalization of the Platform in the next phase.
Subject to the availability of resources, the 2030 Connect is in the process of being expanded further, with complementary support being visualized for developing countries to make the most of these services.
