"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete." (Buckminster Fuller).
New technologies and their acceptance in society nowadays are strong economic and social factors. Yet the transition from an idea to the final product and the adoption of new technologies are still a challenge, and it is essential to understand the interconnected processes to shape a sustainable culture of innovation. In order to achieve a common understanding of innovation and its impact on society, the working group intends to enable individuals as well as international institutions to support new technologies. The group also aims at identifying the best practices of innovation for establishing new forms of north-south cooperation.
