Research in times of crisis: which benefits can applied research contribute?

Breakout Session 7 at the Alpbach Technology Forum 2020, Alpbach, 28. August 11:30 – 13:30, in cooperation with Forschung Austria

This breakout session at the 2020 Technology Forum Alpbach will focus on the role that applied research can play in the crisis. We will discuss the role of applied research before (e.g. foresight studies), during (e.g. vaccine research) and after (e.g. acceleration of change) crises. How can crises and challenges in general lead to more sustainable societies and economies and how can research, technology and innovation contribute to this?
