A conference hosted by the Max Planck Society and Siemens.
In co-operation with Economist Intelligence Unit and the Skolkovo Foundation.
Science and business can make many things possible. In today’s fast-moving world, however, we need dialogue more than ever before – between executives and researchers, and among policy-makers and ordinary citizens.
The aim of Future Dialogue is to create a forum for that conversation. Future Dialogue is a series of conferences, taking place around the world.
At our first Future Dialogue in Berlin in 2009, we took a big look at how the world is tackling the challenges of our time: climate change, healthcare and urbanisation. In Beijing, in 2010, we focused on new approaches to the energy issues confronting us. And in 2011 in Delhi, we focused on the topic of sustainable cities.
This year we’re moving to Moscow. On April 9-10 2013, we’ll focus on innovation – the very process of turning science and technology into solutions to generate sustainable growth and prosperity. We’ll be asking what drives innovation and how policy-makers, researchers and business leaders can best facilitate it in Russia and around the world.more about the conference
