The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated our swift adaptation to big challenges and strengthened cooperation ties between researchers, politicians, and entrepreneurs on national and global levels. The accumulated life and goal setting practices in the new reality will be discussed on October 15–26, 2021 by participants of the XI International Academic Conference ‘Foresight and Science, Technology and Innovation Policy’ organised by the Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge (ISSEK).
The sector of science, technology and innovation (STI) is even more nonlinear and complex than the world behind the looking glass from the Lewis Carroll’s story. For companies and countries wishing to claim or secure leadership, it is no longer enough to simply run all guns blazing to stay in the competition over global chains, or even run twice as fast to occupy higher positions. Which strategies lead to success, which skillsets are required for effective management in STI, what trends and metrics should be taken into account, all this was discussed by the members of X International Academic Conference in Foresight and STI on the wide spectrum of county cases and industries, paying special attention to the context of COVID-19.
