How can future technologies help us meet major societal challenges such as climate change while at the same time preserving our prosperity? How do we ensure the safety of new materials, products and processes? How can science create trust in its results in post-factual times? And how can start-ups with future technologies establish themselves in structurally conservative industries?

These questions were the topic of the digital symposium "Trust in Future Technologies", on the occasion of BAM's 150th anniversary.



The symposium was conducted using WebEx.
