Program

Technology is a key driver when we look for solutions for better sustainability. Technology is adopted very much via business and corporations.

A key issue thus is how to develop better technologies and how to get it adopted widely in the society.

We will have a panel discussion on the opportunities and challenges of driving change for a more sustainable business.

In the panel we will have founders from two startups that are developing and commercializing novel technological solutions for sustainability. The founders discuss with two university researchers who are working on the tech development and adoption from the research perspective. The discussion is facilitated by a strategy consultant specialized in sustainability issues.
