Here are brief conference announcement:
The Fulbright Academy's Fifth Annual Conference will be a four-day
extravaganza in San Francisco, California on March 11-14, 2010
How are Fulbright scholars in business, government, NGO and higher
education working - individually or collaboratively - to prepare for and
secure a better future? How are science, technology and other innovations
being used as a catalyst for economic development? How are social
sciences playing a role in the sustainability effort?
As part of a Sustainability Initiative, FAST is convening a leadership
group to make a real difference. Plenary lectures will lead into workshops
giving all participants the opportunity to explore the potential
compatibility of economic growth and social well-being.
The conference will build upon the outcomes of previous FAST programs
while also promoting some of the most current developments in areas such
as economic and business sustainability, agricultural and food
sustainability, social development and technological innovation. During
the past five years, FAST conferences and workshops have been held in
Ecuador, Germany, Macedonia, Morocco, Qatar, Singapore and the USA.
At this conference, the 250+ participants will meet experts in economics,
business development, engineering, natural and social sciences,
technology, medicine, public policy, as well as Fulbright scholars whose
personal or business interests relate to those fields. As with other FAST
programs, the conference is designed for Fulbright alumni, hosts, and
friends, but registration is open to the public.
