Panel 3 – Anticipatory governance and responsible innovation

Apr 22, 2024 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM


The rapid development pace of emerging technologies makes it challenging to implement timely and effective regulation. Anticipatory approaches, which take a forward-look to get ahead of technology developments and governance challenges, help build longer-term capacity to shape innovation more effectively and maximise the positive impacts of new technologies whilst mitigating the risks. This panel will deep-dive into how communities at the international level - including civil society - can be brought together to create an agile and adaptive anticipatory governance ecosystem.
