Technologies, Economy and Societies

The Node Technologies, Economy and Societies is dedicated to reflecting on the characteristics of technical progress and its relationship with the economy and society. 

It is interested in issues such as the weakness of productivity gains and therefore of average increases in purchasing power; the widening of inequalities of all kinds and their link with the urgency of climate policy; society’s reaction to rapid, sometimes spectacular, technological changes, sometimes with more consequences for society than for the economy.  

The Node is therefore looking into the modes of governance of technological development that will generate wealth, be accepted by society and contribute to the necessary transition due to climate change.
