2022 EXPERT PANELS

In the lead up to the Symposium (September 21-23 2022), GARI and its partners will convene 3 interdisciplinary Expert Panels

First panel: experts from the 5 symposium strands relay their interpretation of what is going on, what they think will happen, and mainly the challenges they and their sector face

Second panel: experts from technology, methodology, and foresight “solve” and design responses and solutions to the first panel’s challenges from their expertise and perspective

Third joint panel: will discuss the integration of the challenges & solutions and discuss the abilities and practicalities of the application of solutions as well as the issues around the meeting of the two (panel) realms (trust, applicability, understandability, and relationship building between the geopolitical/socio-economic and tech/foresight realm)

The online Expert Panels inform the program of the N100 Symposium
