How are Singapore, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden tackling the global pandemic, and how can these insights make an impact in the developing world?

Join experts from these countries and the UNDP Global Centre for a sharing session about digital tools that have been developed and are currently under development for the national and global fight against COVID-19 and future pandemics.

You will hear an overview of what is taking place in five digitally advanced nations and continue discussions with parties you find the most interesting. We will showcase specific companies providing concrete solutions and give opportunities for Q&A with representatives of Singapore, the Nordics, and UNDP.

This event is co-organised by Nordic Innovation House Singapore and the UNDP Singapore Global Centre for Technology, Innovation and Sustainable Development. A list of open-source software available for tackling the current crisis is growing at UNDP’s website.
