#Tech4Society – New Technologies and the Individual
In this workshop, we seek to explore ways of how new technologies can address some of the key societal challenges in health and the world of work.
At the core of individual wellbeing stands high-quality healthcare and work. Both are essential aspects of a good and full-filling life for many. They are significantly affected by the changing parameters of an economy and society that is increasingly built on data, digital services, and online interaction. The COVID-19 pandemic magnifies the social risks and opportunities associated with new technologies in health care and work, for instance, the exposure of key health workers to higher risks of infection at work compared to teleworkers.
In times of crisis there often is momentum for reform to rethink our health care institutions and the principles of what good work means in the modern age but also how to develop policies that would harness the benefits of technological innovation (e.g. new telemedicine).
In this workshop, we seek to explore ways of how new technologies can address some of the key societal challenges in health and the world of work. Join us to discuss solutions for providing the political framework of scaling up technologies that work for the benefit of society!
