Meeting with Nobel Laureates

WHAT WILL THE MID-21ST CENTURY LOOK LIKE?

17:15-18:30 Congress Centre, Conference Hall D2
The universal language of science has for many years enabled academics around the globe to communicate effectively and understand one another. In the wake of the prevailing new economic reality, society has to be ready to engage in constructive dialogue and a continuous search for innovative, breakthrough technologies. By combining the efforts of academics and practitioners, a comprehensive exchange of ideas, experience, and knowledge can be achieved, which will consequently support the further peaceful development of the international community. Why is it that, outside the world of science, it is often so difficult to reach mutual understanding? What is the role of academics in trying to find a universal language of communication? Will the best minds bring their efforts together to meet such a challenge?

Highlights

The future of our civilization is assured by the Earth’s sustainable development. The principal instability is due to the difference in the quality of life in different countries, and this difference must be eliminated.

Valentin Parmon
Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences

We need to change philosophy of the people in the whole world from linear resource-based economy thinking to system thinking. We need to optimize our life: resources, lifestyle, way of using food and other parts of our life.

Riccardo Valentini
Nobel Peace Prize Laureate; Presidential Advisor, Head of Far Eastern Climate Smart Project, Far Eastern Federal University; Head, CMCC (The Euro-Mediterranean Centre for Climate Change)

We should teach people to “understand” and not just to “know” – only then will we be able to teach people to handle the flow of knowledge which is being produced today at a great pace, and only then will we be able to continue to develop that knowledge.

Vladimir Fortov
President, Russian Academy of Sciences

The significant step forward is that at last we seem to acknowledge that the problem of global warming exists and we try to solve it by recent world’s agreements such as Paris agreement.

Rodney John Allam
Nobel Peace Prize Laureate; Chief Technology Officer, Net Power LLC

We should follow the “open innovation” slogan and develop it to transform fundamental knowledge and to translate the results of such transformation into applied sciences and into innovative technologies, thus transmitting inventions to the enterprises of Russia and the entire world.

Anatoly Dmitrievsky
Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences

People need an innovation in the world’s economy policy-making. We need to change the way we think about economy because we focus too much on short-term return from our technologies, investments, etc.

Rae Kwon Chung
Nobel Peace Prize Laureate; Advisor to the Chairman, High-Level Experts and Leaders Panel on Water and Disasters, United Nations

Our future will not be tied to hydrocarbons, it will be tied to the dearth of human resources.

Alexander Rasumov
Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences

Let’s suppose that we live in a perfect world where robots do all the boring work, where we have technologies everywhere, and free trade rules are followed. Jobs obviously come from the service sector because the service sector cannot be fully automated.

Christopher Pissarides
Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences Laureate; Professor of Economics, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)
