THE BIG CHALLENGES IN PROMOTING SCIENTIFIC DEVELOPMENT

14:15-15:30 Pavilion G, Amphitheatre Hall
Science and technology play a predominant role in providing solutions to modern humanity’s critical challenges. Science itself is evolving as it confronts new challenges, but to what extent are these changes the result of external factors? What is currently driving scientific development internationally and in Russia: responding to external demands or the sequential logic of R&D activities? What are the key foundations of modern-day scientific and technical development and how might this change? What are some of the potential social, economic, and political impacts that can be derived from effective approaches to scientific development?

Progress now largely depends on our skills in monitoring, processing, accumulating and linking data. Data have become the “fuel” for the economy and social progress.

Manufacturing industries do not generate demand for science. Demand is an outgrowth of the innovation economy.
