In 2021, EuroTech Universities Alliance celebrates its 10th anniversary. Under the slogan “Empowering Society”, EuroTech High-level Event will explore this year the benefits of technology for society, but also its limitations, engaging in a dialogue with citizens, policymakers, researchers.
Eric Labaye, President of École Polytechnique, will discuss with Heidrun Mollenkopf, Vice-President of AGE Platform Europe about how technology development is done at universities of science and technology and how end-users are included in that process. Are they included enough? What are the challenges and barriers? How can innovation processes be made inclusive?
