Purpose and goal
The purpose of the second term of SNS Digitech Forum has been to identify concrete policy proposals, deepen the discussion and remain a constructive, solution-orientated, policy-making environment for discussion and debate. Together with home-grown as well as international researchers and experts, we have focused on several issues relevant to the digital age, both within in-depth themes such as health care and new themes like blockchain technology and self-driving vehicles.
Expected results and effects
SNS has provided an arena for knowledge-based discussion about digitization. To nuance and clarify the discussion about potential effects, we have linked our seminars to the research programs that SNS conduct, dealing with topics such as the future supply of skills, health care and built environment. To identify the key issues, we have organized workshops and activities around the seminars which have contributed to information retrieval and feedback from the experts that SNS engages.
Planned approach and implementation
During the second term, a total of 411 people has participated in the seminars and workshops organized within the Digitech Forum. From May 2017 we have addressed questions about eHealth, digital brands, IT in education, blockchains, self-driving cars and automation. In order to create a more relevant meeting place, we have actively included representatives from new industries and digital entrepreneurs. The 6 meetings have now served as a venue for even more professions and industries.
