Private and public sector collaborations rely heavily on digital infrastructure and connectivity to communicate processing power and quickly transfer valuable data, information, and insights, which are key in the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Global innovations focused on providing ventilators, rapid test kits, and supercomputing power to aid researchers and scientists have already proven to make a difference in inhibiting the spread of the virus. With that said, the momentum behind this industry collaboration will continue play a key role in delivering the innovations the world needs to return to a post-pandemic normal.
Collaboration between companies and governments has the potential to unlock effective solutions for restraining the spread of COVID-19 – under what conditions is such collaboration possible? What role do regulators play in enabling this global collaboration? What are the challenges facing deeper collaboration, and how might they interfere with the success of innovative ideas and strategies? Drawing upon decades of industry experience, panelists will deliberate on these matters and more in the virtual discussion around unleashing innovation through collaboration.
