Create32 is a new and visionary project, established by the Austrian Economic Alliance, which aims at finding answers to crucial questions that will shape Austria’s future in the coming twenty years.
Austria in 20 years – we need answers
With economy and society changing rapidly, innovation is key if one wants to retain their position at the top. With Austria’s current position being threatened, Create32 sets out to meet the challenges that lie ahead. To do so, answers need to be found to questions such as:
- What is required to remain at the helm in the coming 20 years?
- What do local businesses need to remain competitive?
- What course do we have to take to promote Austria’s innovation potential in order to expand Austria’s economic growth and strengthen Austria’s economic base for the future?
To avoid coming up with the same ideas over and over again, Create32 invited a diverse group of national and international experts and entrepreneurs from all sectors. This group of over 30 people will sit on a ‘Future Lab’ expert panel to combine their knowledge and expertise, in order to ‘rethink’ Austria’s future.
Each member of the ‘Future Lab’ is an expert in his own field. Michel Rademaker has been invited to join the panel as an expert on resource scarcity and geopolitics. The ‘Future Lab’ is the centerpiece of the Create32 project and is key in developing advanced strategies for innovation in Austria.
