Webinar explores how past crises have shaped the world
Crises often pose a challenge to businesses, governments, and citizens. But they can also be an opportunity to think outside the box and develop new solutions to old problems.
On August 30, at 9 am Eastern, the GFCC and its member Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) host the webinar Innovation in the Face of Adversity: How Past Crises Have Shaped the World as part of the Driving Innovation in Times of Crisis (DITC) initiative.
Since 2022, GFCC and JST have worked together to deepen the understanding of crises to unlock new opportunities for innovation in periods of hardship.
The webinar will draw lessons from three case studies developed by a joint research team since the beginning of this year: the 9/11 attacks, the Global Financial Crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event will count on the participation of two of our distinguished fellows, Jerry Hultin and Rogério Studart, and the presence of health expert Jon Filippon, Senior Lecturer in Health Systems at Queen Mary University of London.
About the DITC
Since 2022, the GFCC and its member Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) have been promoting discussions and fomenting research to deepen the understanding of crises that unlock new opportunities for innovation and competitiveness.
As part of this effort, the GFCC organized a series of online conversations with leaders from the corporate sector and relevant research institutes in Japan in 2022. A report with the main finding is available here.
