This year’s theme, “What is the future of innovation-driven growth?” focuses on the effect of innovation on productivity and wellbeing of society over the coming decades. The report addresses the following question: Is stagnation and low productivity growth here to stay, or are we about to enter a new era, where new innovation spurts – the Digital Age and the Deep Science Innovation waves – bring about an economic uplift?
