Key technologies, such as AI, quantum, neuro, nano, bio and 6G technologies and the process of digitalization are becoming increasingly important due to their transformative - but also disruptive - effect on businesses, foreign and geopolitics and diplomatic decision-making.

To do justice to this new geopolitical environment and to find appropriate responses to these new challenges in close cooperation with the United States, the European Union and its member states, increased attention will be paid to building the capacities of a more strategically positioned tech diplomacy at the BMEIA.

Building on the traditional focus of Austrian foreign policy, Austrian tech diplomacy also contributes to shaping an order for the digital space that is based on international law and human rights. Digital humanism offers a good compass for dealing with the great potential and risks of new technologies.

The event is free, registration required.
