Technology and Innovation for Sustainable Development
4 June 2021
08:30—09:45
Sustainable development, a paradigm of the harmonious coexistence of ecological, social, and economic systems in the interests of present and future generations, assumes there will be a large-scale transformation of business and an active transition to an innovative type of business model and business thinking.
Growing environmental problems, the economic consequences of natural and manmade disasters, problems in the social sector, and the rapid decline in natural resources dictate the need for the advanced development of certain specific areas of scientific and technological research and development. Today, the focus is on «clean» energy, biotechnology, genomic medicine, nanomaterials, self-driving cars, eco-friendly materials, artificial intelligence, and green technologies.
