Global challenges and the role of ICT for Europe

EIF Dinner Debate


Meeting with Ben Verwaayen, CEO at Alcatel-Lucent.

“We are not faced with “just” an economic crisis, but also a crisis of confidence in leadership and a major climate change crisis.  We need radically different thinking, all leaders alike.  And in today’s Web 2.0 communications world, we are all increasingly interdependent- no one can do it alone.  I am a passionate believer in the role of ICT in responding to today’s major challenges. We have a major role to play in redesigning economies, the environment and being a platform for society.  Business and political leaders need to speak to each other- we need radically different thinking for our 21st century challenges.” Ben, Davos 2010.
