Christopher Fabian

UNICEF
Sr Advisor on Innovation to the Exec Dir
Christopher Fabian (@hichrisfabian) co-created and has co-lead UNICEF’s Innovation Unit in New York since 2007. Working with UNICEF’s 135 country offices, the Innovation Unit’s research and development priorities focus on near-term challenges in the world’s most difficult operating environments. The Unit’s accomplishments have garnered global recognition, notably: Top 50 Innovations of 2011 from Time Magazine, and, in 2012, gold and silver IDSA awards, and a Redhat prize for being one of the three top open source projects, and recognition as one of the most innovative companies in the world by Fast Company in 2014. Christopher believes that technology is not the end-product of innovation, but a principal driver of new ways of thinking about development problems. Convinced that global, authentic, and humble engagement among academia, the private sector and civil society is the best type of problem-solving, Christopher has taught and lectured at NYU, the Art Center, Columbia University, Harvard University and IIT Delhi among other universities.
