The conference is being organised in partnership with The University of the West Indies (The UWI) and the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) and will be held June 9-12, under the theme ‘Science and Technology as a Pillar for Regional Transformation’. The Jamaica National Group is a major sponsor of the conference.
