Experimentation by Design
The technological development is happening at an increasing pace and at the same time, we are facing societal challenges so complex and far-reaching that they cannot possibly be dealt with by public bodies alone.

This leads to questions such as:

  • Which implications does the rapid technological development have for growth in businesses and what role do businesses play in the development of society?
  • How do we create agile public regulation that can keep up with a reality marked by the staggering technological advances, emerging business models and new emerging societal challenges?
  • How do we fund new approaches to meet the great challenges and the possible opportunities of the future in a reality that calls for increased collaboration between business, government, NGOs and civil society?

If we are to tackle the challenges that these questions entail and not let the inherent opportunities pass, we need to challenge the existing ways we collaborate on and finance the solutions of the future. Experimentation by Design will provide you with cutting-edge insights from internationally acknowledged speakers, and together with the other specially invited participants, you will get an opportunity to explore the latest advances in agile business models and policymaking.

The conference will be structured around keynotes from leaders in business and government and leading international researchers. There will also be workshop streams focusing on more specific areas and we promise that the programme will leave room for as much networking as possible – both formal and informal.

A detailed programme and speakers will be published here on our web page as they are confirmed.
