The 2017 programme focuses on four thematic tracks incuding scaling up human-centred technology, leading continuous reinvention,creating sustainable systems and responding to geo-economic shifts, shaping more than 200 sessions over the three-day meeting.

As part of a broader effort to provide a narrative vision as well as a practical policy agenda for ensuring technology progress augments rather than substitutes human potential and employment, the World Economic Forum has also published a new report on Advancing Human-Centred Economic Progress in the Fourth Industrial Revolution during the press cnference. In addition to providing a framework for much of the discussion during the Annual Meeting of the New Champions, the report also forms part of portfolio of thought leadership that has been specially commissioned ahead of this year’s G20 Summit, which is taking place on 7-8 July in Hamburg, Germany.

Established in 2007, the Annual Meeting of the New Champions has become the foremost gathering on science, technology and innovation. It serves as a platform for leaders to deepen their understanding of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This year’s meeting will focus on how technology and policy innovations can be deployed to accelerate the transition towards a more inclusive style of economic growth that prioritizes meaningful job creation and sustainable development.
