Registration open Conference Connecting the Dots, 30 janauary 2015, Media Plaza, Utrecht.

Drones, 4D printing, DNA sequencing, labs-on-a-chip, synthetic biology and artificial intelligence are just a few examples of possible disruptive innovations in food, mobility and buildings. They will inevitably interact, solving problems, creating new dynamics, and challenging society and governments. That is why the Dutch Council for the Environment and Infrastructure (Rli) has conducted a survey examining the impact of technological innovations on the public and private domain. Rli will present and discuss the survey results at the ‘Connecting the Dots’ conference.
