Panel discussion on the effects of digital technology on economy

The Industrial Revolution was a momentous event that affected profoundly, redirected even, the course of history, marking a radical shift from prolonged economic stagnation of several centuries to sustainable development and the improvement of the living standards for society at the time. The modern-day digital revolution, hailed as a “new industrial revolution,” is the most recent instance of rapid change profoundly affecting the structures of society and the economy. The speakers will be examining the ways in which digital technology can become a catalyst for economic development, and information and communication technologies can provide solutions to the current “crisis” and help revitalize both the European and the Greek economies.

The 11th  event of the Dialog for Development series is organized by the Hellenic American College / Hellenic American University and the Hellenic American Union, in cooperation with the International Association of European Journalists and the European Business Review.
