Technology in and for Society: Innovating well for inclusive transitions

Introduction to Day 2 and Panel 2 (Parallel)

Dec 7, 2021 | 10:45 AM - 10:55 AM


This short session distilled key insights from day 1 on values and introduce day 2 that focused on goals and tools. The item concluded with a brief introduction to panel 2 - developing emerging technology for critical missions. It took place in three concurrent thematic panels: on neurotechnology (2a), on carbon neutrality (2b) and on global health (2c). Calls for “goal-oriented” and transformative innovation display a new level of urgency to better connect emerging technologies to specific challenges and goals like the SDGs. ● How can policies and practices by government and other stakeholders help ensure that the development of novel technologies addresses the most important problems? ● How might governance and inclusive processes help meet this challenge?
