About the GESDA Summit
Under GESDA’s vision of « Using the Future to Build the Present, » the second GESDA Summit, from 12 to 14 October 2022, cultivated dialogue on critical future opportunities and risks, complementing the second GESDA Science Breakthrough Radar®, which was released at the event. Its contents were used as a starting point for all discussions.
This flagship document:
– takes account of the the Debates related to the current challenges facing humanity
– assesses Trends in scientific frontier issues along three timeframes (5, 10, and 25 years), providing an easy-to-read map of possible breakthroughs.
The 2022 Summit program aligned with the original GESDA methodology through the keywords « Anticipate, Accelerate, Translate » and sessions were tagged accordingly in three tracks.
The program has been developed with engagement in mind. During the various panel sessions, interactive discussions and workshops that took place over the three days of the summit, virtual and in-person participants – over 1100 in total – had the opportunity to contribute by sharing their thoughts and questions with the speakers and a wider audience.
