The programme session of our #rp18 topic “Tech For Good” illustrated how the right use of, for example, smart phone apps, big data, blockchain, innovative software solutions or drones can contribute to greater efficiency, transparency and participation. We brought together inspiring and innovative inputs that highlighted the potential of digital technologies to solve global problems. The sessions provided examples of solutions and success stories and also offered a platform to discuss the challenges and risks associated with the digital transformation.

For this Topic, we particularlygave a voice to speakers from the Global South. New innovation centers have long since emerged in Africa, South America and Asia from which we in Europe can also learn quite a bit.
