Background:
Sharing knowledge and experience more effectively can help solve complex problems. In these uncertain economic times, the exchange of knowledge, skills, and expertise (practicality) could be a useful basis of collaboration to solve complex problems. However, such a partnership requires strong interactions and relationships between experts, problem solvers, and society. Diasporans and organizations like NRNA-ICC can play an essential role in strengthening such interactions and connections. By bringing expert communities closer together, they can also help bridge the knowledge and skill gaps and pave the way for future collaborations.

Objective:

The NRNA-ICC’s second knowledge-sharing conference’s goal is to bring together a great diversity of people and key stakeholders from the Americas and Nepal and exchange knowledge, experience, skills, and opportunities to strengthen the science and technology, human resources, entrepreneurship, policies, and practices in both regions. It also aims to build meaningful relationships between scholars, professionals, institutions, industry practitioners, entrepreneurs, problem-solvers, and the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors in Nepal and the Americas, and pave the way for future collaborations to solve some of our most challenging problems.
