- Innovation

Innovation is essential to solve the world’s problems and to create a free, open and sustainable future. We seek not only to enhance the development of technologies, but to drive their deployment in society, and to contribute to global rule-making that aligns evolving technologies with goals for society. We also strive to foster the next generation of leaders who will shape the future with innovation.
