Annual Report 2020
The coronavirus pandemic has made it plain that in order to achieve stability and a prudent “new normal” during times of crisis, it is necessary to embrace change. The importance of freedom of choice and autonomy in the use of new technologies has also become apparent, especially in the digital transformation. In 2020, acatech made the case for using innovative technologies to strengthen resilience and enable more sustainable value creation in order to allow the human pursuit of self-fulfilment, prosperity, freedom and security without harming the climate and environment. While first-rate research and proactive businesses are both key to making this possible, they are not enough on their own – innovation is a collective endeavour.
