ICRISAT Director General David Bergvinson will be a key intervener on Panel 1.2: Stimulating digital innovation across the economy
Objectives of the Panel 1.2
The adoption and use of information and communication technologies (ICTs), including data analytics, across the economy can stimulate digital innovation and help foster productivity, green and inclusive growth, social prosperity, and development. Today, a slowdown in the diffusion of technology and knowledge from high productivity firms to other firms may be an important source of the current productivity slowdown. The diffusion of ICTs and its effective use in particular remains short of its potential.
