SITE4Society is an International Platform for mobilizing academic knowledge and capabilities towards making the world a better place

SITE4Society is another initiative by Prof. Shyama Ramani in the United Nations University at Maastricht, the Netherlands, UNU-MERIT, that has been directly inspired by her activist work in Friend In Need Trust. Its objective is to create dialogue and cooperation between students, researchers and other community stakeholders on pathways to attain the Sustainable Development Goals. Its activities have been developed in collaboration with different groups of academics and students across the globe, with the core team being in UNU-MERIT. The focus is on the SITE variables i.e. science, innovation, infrastructure, technology and engagement (via entrepreneurship and/or governance) that can serve the National Missions of countries and attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals.
