Part of the House of Scandinavia – Human-Centered Tech and Design Shaping Society – (held at SAP House) Until very recently the world looked to Silicon Valley and the global tech elites to lead us towards the future: to empower and enlighten people and businesses, to make technology democratic, to provide equality and create a new and more sustainable form of capitalism and society. It is a apparent that this is not the happening the way we imagined it. As it becomes more and more obvious that current big tech models for innovation fails to address basic human needs such as privacy, data protection and sustainability in both economic, social and environmental terms, it is time for new global leadership in tech: One that is equally innovative, but which puts humans first. In other words we need to design differently when we develop business and societies.


Growing from a small, open economy like Ireland’s has encouraged its tech companies to be global in outlook. That global perspective, matched with a culture of innovation, has given Irish companies and their clients a distinct advantage and earned Ireland a reputation as one of the best locations in the world for producing technology companies.
