Netexplo Forum 2014

March 26th, 27th & 28th, 2014 - UNESCO - 125, avenue de Suffren - Paris 7

The three-day event will feature a year’s highlights of digital innovation worldwide and focus on new uses of tech for your business, from social media, the mobile web and the internet of things to man-machine interfaces, robotics and artificial intelligence.

Netexplo, an exclusive preview of tomorrow’s society

Every year Netexplo spots more than 500 emerging uses of technology that are shaping tomorrow’s society worldwide. A society where digital tech is more and more integrated and individuals are more and more connected. Netexplo focuses on new approaches to every aspect of civilisation, from learning, caring and communicating to working, governing and trading.

Netexplo, digital innovations from the whole world

Digital isn’t limited to Silicon Valley. Netexplo’s mission is to reveal the most innovative projects from every continent, including inspirational initiatives from the BRICs, the markets with the greatest growth opportunities for businesses. Come and see new faces of digital tech from unexpected countries.

Netexplo, new applications for your business

Only 2% of the world’s companies are digital natives. Designed for the 98% that aren’t, Netexplo gives them an international, open digital culture. The innovations it reveals shed light on your own enterprise and its future markets and competitors. Netexplo is a source of inspiration for your business as it addresses its own digital revolution.

UNESCO supports the Netexplo Forum



UNESCO supports the Netexplo Forum which will take place over two days at the Organisation’s headquarters on March 26th & 28th, 2014.

UNESCO works to build peace in the minds of men and women through international cooperation in the fields of education, science, culture, information and communication.
Focusing on the development of digital technologies and their cultural and sociological aspects is an essential part of our mission. The new possibilities for dialogue and participation, but also access to knowledge, education and culture, stemming from the growth of internet are naturally at the core of UNESCO’s work and its mandate to serve peace and development by:
- Promoting the free flow of ideas and universal access to information
- Promoting the expression of pluralism and cultural diversity in the media and world information networks
- Promoting access for all to ICTs (information & communication technologies).

The Netexplo Forum meets those goals by recognising promising digital initiatives worldwide and fostering the emergence of knowledge societies. It is an innovative project that aims to  create the conditions for dialogue and sharing knowledge between cultures and peoples, based upon respect for universal values.
