12:00 PM CESTPanel 2: Policies for Life Science Innovation

The life sciences industry is the world’s most R&D-intensive sector, annually investing nearly one-quarter of its revenues back into the R&D that generates discoveries leading to new medicines that save lives, extend them, or improve them. What can policymakers do to optimally support the life sciences sector in their economies? In particular, how should the EU and European nations reevaluate their policy approaches—especially new EU pharmaceutical regulations that would limit regulatory data protections for new medicines introduced on the continent? An expert panel also will explore how emerging technologies such as AI, gene editing, and personalized medicine are transforming research and development of innovative cures.

From AI to smart grids to Industry 4.0, digitally enabled technologies are enabling the drive toward decarbonization, whether it comes to adopting more efficient industrial manufacturing practices or powering up electric vehicles overnight when electricity is cheaper. How exactly are digital technologies enabling decarbonization, how can countries and communities facilitate the adoption and use of these technologies, and how can policymakers overcome obstacles to this pathway for decarbonization?

4:30 PM CESTPanel 4: Toward a More Resilient Globalization

The reorganization of global value chains has spurred a debate about the tradeoffs between resiliency, efficiency, sustainability, and self-sufficiency. But these goals aren’t necessarily in conflict, especially as modern digital and energy technologies enable new approaches to the global production of goods and services. How are companies and governments at the federal, state, and local levels positioning themselves to compete as global supply chains are reimagined in an era of technological and geopolitical change?

  • Christian Forwick, Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action
