Nobel Prize Summit 2021 Event: From Results in the Lab to Results on the Ground

Hosted by Global Solutions Summit

How can we ensure that cutting edge scientific results enhance sustainability and lead to concrete improvements in peoples’ lives? To make an impact, scientific knowledge has to be embedded in products and organizations that meet three criteria:

1. Financial, operational, and environmental sustainability;

2. Accessibility to the billions of people with low income rather than serving only the economic elites;

3. Deployed at scale to improve the lives of hundreds of millions of people in dozens of countries in thousands of communities around the world.

The panelists will discuss why this daunting task is eminently worth pursuing, but will require some changes to business-as-usual procedures in the scientific community and in within industry.
