Technology provides solutions
How does technology contribute to major societal challenges? That question was central to the festival. Lucas van Grinsven, chairman of Dutch Technology Festival: “The image of technology is often outdated. It’s up to us to turn that around. We must make it clear that technology is all around us and that every day we can make the world a little healthier, faster and better. Technology offers answers to important social transitions in, for example, mobility and energy.”
