On Mon 6 and Tue 7 December, 2021, join the TECHNOLOGY IN AND FOR SOCIETY Conference. This year’s theme is Innovating well for inclusive transitions: how can we innovate both more and within inclusive processes, with values at the centre, and with lasting positive impact? The conference will include multi-stakeholder meetings aiming to explore values, design principles, and a possible practical agenda for leveraging good governance for critical sociotechnical transformations. It is organized by the OECD, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

The conference’s aims are:
1. To explore how the design of policies related to upstream technology governance can help open pathways for needed sociotechnical change while building public trust in the STI system, and preventing or correcting potential negative effects
2. To pool practical ideas, experiences and knowledge to anticipate longer-term practices, uses and impacts of emerging technologies and develop capacities to promote, steer and cope with sociotechnical change
3. To explore what kinds of frameworks and multilateral approaches are needed for promoting values-based technology, responsible innovation, and inclusive transitions.
