2022 EXPERT PANELS

In the lead up to the Symposium (September 21-23 2022), GARI and its partners will convene 3 interdisciplinary Expert Panels, starting with the Programme Expert Panel (April 2021) with experts on each of the conference programme strands (see below). This will be followed by the Technology Panel (June 2021) which will discuss how the ideas from the first panel might be operationalized. The final Joint Expert Panel (September 2021) will discuss how technology and foresight analysis could ideally be leveraged to enhance capabilities and opportunities in their area of focus. Each Expert Panel will then produce a short report based on a set of guiding questions that will be circulated to speakers and participants as well as targeted policymakers, industry stakeholders, academics and civil society partners prior to the N100 symposium.
