Technology Symposium

InEquality

-

The Technology Symposium is searching for the causes, future developments and consequences of InEquality. What positive or negative impact does InEquality bring about? How relevant is it? Will new technologies and ways of thinking have a positive impact or a negative one? Can state-of-the-art developments like complexity research or the bio-economy deliver appropriate answers? What role will InEquality play in future industrial and working environments?

InEquality will be at the centre of innovative discussions and encounters of science, research, technology, politics and industry. Numerous plenary sessions and fourteen breakout sessions will connect research, innovation and technology in an interdisciplinary dialogue with international experts. "Junior Alpbach" and "Ö1 Children's University" will explore new models of science education for future generations.
