How the knowledge triangle is spurring on our digital revolution

The importance of the research, education and innovation sectors in delivering tech innovation

Organised by The Brussels Times with the support of Huawei

We are all living through a digital revolution – one where technology is transforming the operation of all key vertical industries.

But for governments to implement strong digital economy strategies, there has to be real investments in the research, education and innovation sectors.

Without the involvement in all of these three elements, the necessary economic and social agendas cannot be achieved.

The necessary educational investment into basic research and skills are required if society is going to deliver the most innovative products and solutions into the marketplace.

The discussion at this webinar will look at how governments can implement wide ranging education and research policies so as to develop strong innovation eco-systems.
