Executing Technology Needs Assessments
One of the principle subjects at the virtual gathering 1-3 April will be acceptable practices and exercises gained from actualizing the consequences of Technology Needs Assessments (TNAs.) The Technology Executive Committee will build up an approach brief on exercises gained from executing TNAs and will get ready important proposals to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow.
