DIGITAL SOCIETY

Digital technologies have enabled a global disruptive transformation thanks to which there are greater connectivity, improved efficiency, enhanced productivity, renewed economic diversity and increased opportunities within an empowered, knowledge-based society. The chemical industry has generally been slow in embracing this incredible trend, conducive of so many performance enhancements. At the same time, chemistry is a key enabler in helping to design and produce the materials needed in the components and devices that make up digital technology, as well as in improving their performance.

The scope of the Digital Society theme at the World Chemical Summit will be twofold:
What can or should the chemical industry do to embrace the digital revolution more effectively?
In which ways the chemical industry can provide solutions and should develop to help to:

Extend the implementation of powerful
digital technologies in society

Foster sustainable energy sources.

Provide the necessary products and materials that will enable increasingly sophisticated electronic component production technologies
