Keynote: A bright future

We know we're heading into a vastly different future, but the picture we have of that future is blurry, impacted by thousands of simultaneous changes. This complexity overwhelms most of us into complacency, because how do we prepare for a future we cannot see clearly? In this talk Tine Thygesen paints a picture that enables us to sharpen our ability to make the right investments and plans for the future. This enables us to start building our future societies and give ourselves a better chance of a brighter future.

Risk and threats from not controlling intellectual assets

Research and innovation strengthen national security and strategic capabilities, but can in the wrong hands put our nation and our innovation at high risk.  Our understanding must increase of threats and mitigation, as well as of how intellectual assets create value and are best protected through cyber, legal agreements, physical access and other protection measures.

Winning the war for Scaleups - how do we attract and retain?

Scaleups are more than just an engine for innovation, These businesses keep on hiring highly skilled workers, raise Europe’s productivity, and champion our values across the world. Keeping our scaleups is an opportunity to produce home-grown tech giants, contributing to long-term market growth and prosperity.

The people making innovation happen

In 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals gave us a comprehensive plan for a sustainable world by 2030. The 17 goals cover a wide range of issues that involve people with different needs, values, and convictions. There is a vision of what needs to happen but progress is slow. The Inner Development Goals aim to provide a framework to help individuals and organisations become more effective in the work towards greater sustainability and well-being.
