Dr. Gordon Day, 2012 IEEE President, is speaking at GHTC 2012. He noted that  ”besides using our head and hands, this is an opportunity to use our voices.”  




  GHTC 2012 keynote speaker Dr. Gretchen Kalonji, Assistant Director General for Natural Sciences, UNESCO is delivering her speech “Science and Technology in Service to Society: A UNESCO Perspective”.  In her opinion, “opportunities for collaboration with the engineering community are huge, not only in the new UNESCO Engineering Initiative, but throughout our efforts in disasters, water, environmental sciences and in education… One of our meta-goals is to mobilize collaboration on scientific topics that require large-scale multinational cooperation.”
