Technology policy and digital transformation

15-17 March 2021 | Executive seminar

Digital transformation and technology policy technology and their adaption have taken center stage in debates on dealing with the impact of COVID-19, the future of growth, democracy and governance. The rise of the platform economy and growing investments in technologies such as artificial intelligence and its socio-economic applications trigger serious discussions about the future. On the one hand, we see concerns about increasing authoritarianism and a 'surveillance capitalism', on the other, opportunities for increased transparency and inclusive growth. How do governments respond? Which policies and interventions do we currently see globally? What works, what doesn't?

The seminar will discuss the latest developments in technology and the changing policy context in an increasingly bifurcated world. We will look at the key theories as well as case studies of government responses and apply methodologies to assess their impact.
