Nafeza 2 world - Russia will host the fourth BRICS Solutions Awards competition to showcase the best technological solutions and practices from BRICS countries.

Organised by the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI) in collaboration with the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the competition will be held with the support of the BRICS Business Council.

BRICS Solutions Awards’ participants can submit projects in eight categories, including Climate and Environmental Technologies, Artificial Intelligence and Digital Services, and Competencies and Human Resources Development, TV BRICS reported.

The submission deadline is 31 July, and the results will be announced during the BRICS Business Council meeting in October 2024, ahead of the BRICS summit.

Mikhail Makarov, Director of the International Relations Office of ASI, emphasised the competition’s role in fostering dialogue on the future of the technology sector and building a system of independent and multipolar cooperation. He noted that the competition’s agenda changes annually, aligning with the priorities of the presiding country.

“This BRICS Solutions Awards competition was held in 2020 when Russia was the chair of BRICS, we also held it in India and China,” Makarov said. “If we talk about the goals of the competition, then besides the obvious collection of the best technological practices, it is more important for us to launch a dialogue on the future of the technology sector and the formation of a system of independent and multipolar cooperation.”

A qualified international jury will evaluate the submissions to ensure transparency and fairness in the selection process.
