2nd ADB Innovation Fair

05 October 2022 Hybrid


Innovation is the key to solving global development challenges such as climate change and supporting green recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. In line with its Strategy 2030, ADB launched the Innovation Hub in 2021 to foster a culture to drive innovation within ADB and design innovative solutions with developing member countries (DMCs).

The 2nd ADB Innovation Fair will showcase how ADB develops innovative solutions and creates value and impact with its DMCs. The fair will feature the stories behind various innovations within ADB and by its partners. Innovation practitioners and experts will share their insights, stories, and best practices. The fair will give stakeholders the opportunity to network for collaboration and cross-learning and invite ADB staff to engage with the hub’s service lines. The event will have in-person and virtual sessions. Everyone may join the plenary session, innovation speaker series talks, and the TED-style Knowledge and Innovation Talks. ADB staff, consultants, and contractors may join the closed sessions.
