Virtual World Tour - Destination Europe

18 June 2021

EcosystemsInMotionUCL

 

The current healthcare crisis is accelerating the transformations of society, our territories and ecosystems that have become so important in recent years. In this context, we can ask ourselves how the innovation ecosystems that have changed our lives are responding to the unprecedented challenges that are accelerating the transformation of the World? Are we at the dawn of a shift towards a new decarbonized, digital and ecological civilization?

 

3 REGIONS OF THE WORLD - 3 DYNAMICS OF TRANSFORMATION - 3 MEETINGS

Three days of Study Research Action Webinar that are part of 5 years of research in which 17 key destinations have been explored. The guiding questions of this approach are:

• How are innovative ecosystems a factor in the competitiveness of continents, countries, regions and cities?

• How are innovative ecosystems changing today in terms of culture, systems, management and structures?

• How are the most dynamic innovative ecosystems likely to evolve in the future in the face of today's major global challenges?

Focal points include: the role of the university-business-administration triangle, startup dynamics, systemic governance, the general interest, monetary policy, artistic avantgarde, collaborative processes, artificial intelligence and data, short-, medium-, and longterm foresight, benchmarking best practices, and the impact of pandemics.

FROM INNOVATIVE ECOSYSTEMS TO TRANSFORMING ECOSYSTEMS

After six consecutive years of traveling around the world, exploring the dynamics of the planet's main innovative ecosystems, Michel Saloff-Coste is proposing a virtual and collaborative journey for 2021 to leverage collective and prospective intelligence and disseminate more rapidly the key practices observed on the planet. A journey that foreshadows a hybrid journey for 2022. These three days are part of a "virtual world tour" of innovative ecosystems with a view to building a research and Futur Studies network. This study and reflection trip will mobilize academics, researchers, practitioners, senior civil servants and entrepreneurs.

  • Webinar: "The climate deserves better than 12%!" - 21 September

    Webinar: "The climate deserves better than 12%!"

    For several years the financial industry has been multiplying initiatives to measure companies' climate performance and engagement. Scarcely a day goes by without a new fund or index being launched on the basis of this climate data, with the primary declared objective of the investments' positive impact on the transition towards a low-carbon economy.

    However, a study conducted as part of the EDHEC-Scientific Beta 'Advanced ESG and Climate Investing' research chair shows that the reality of traditional climate investing strategies does not live up to the promises and the communication from their promoters.

    To shed light on this question, EDHEC is organising a virtual presentation of the portfolio greenwashing study on September 21.

    Two sessions of this webinar will be held on September 21 at different times.
