The Think Tank

Often, when people think of tech, they think of innovative technologies themselves. But “deep tech” has emerged, predominantly, as an approach to innovation, which happens to draw upon technologies like blockchain, A.I., advanced material science and biotech. It has the potential to disrupt the market and advance climate solutions significantly, but only with the right investments and the right innovative mindsets. How can we embed science, engineering and design into our existing climate innovation, and unleash the disruptive potential of this combined approach? How can we make enough funding available to new deep-tech ventures that prioritize climate solutions?
