Calendar of events for Technology, Innovation and Science 2021

2020 will also be remembered as the year in which the plans, and especially the agenda, were most disrupted, going from canceled and postponed events to a tsunami of virtual dates. The dynamics will not change much during 2021, at least not during the first semester, in which virtual events predominate, some mixed and very few face-to-face.

We learned that the calendar is not a straitjacket, because everything can change at any time, depending on the measures that are taken in each country in relation to the pandemic, which continues. 2021 will be the year in which mass immunization begins, but this task will last until at least 2022. What we can share with certainty is that this list is dynamic and will be constantly updated throughout the year, so that precisely serve as a guide and navigation map so as not to miss the most important appointments of Technology, Innovation and Science, in Colombia and the world.

Do you have a #EventoTIC that we should take into account?

  1. Monthly notes with a selection of recommended.
  2. Weekly suggestions that are sent in our newsletter (to which you can subscribe here).
  3. Social media posts via the tag #TIC Events.
  4. The present calendar.
