Technology for Change Days | 2022

What technologies to drive the transition towards a sustainable and inclusive world ?

This annual event aims to explore the links between technological innovation, applications in the industry and society adoption and reception of technologies in order to explore new pathways towards rethinking methods and approaches, and to map the possibilities for developing « virtuous » technologies capable of inducing sustainable change.

By repositioning technological and social innovation at the heart of citizen debate, these days will offer a platform for dialogue and rapid response to face the major societal and environmental challenges of the 21st century: climate change, depletion of natural resources, ongoing social, cultural, health and economic inequalities.

This annual event is an open invitation to all experts, scientists, professionnals, managers and citizens wishing to discuss and get involved in the co-development of modern and responsible technologies that go beyond a « technological fix » approach. 

This first edition will be dedicated to providing answers to the current pressing issues of: health, environmental protection and conservation, inclusion & low technologies, sustainable computing, disruptive technologies and industries of the future.

IMPORTANT : Registration is free but mandatory.
