Office partners with World Economic Forum
The governor of São Paulo João Doria announced on Wednesday (21) the creation of the Center for the 4th Industrial Revolution, at the Institute of Technological Research (IPT), in São Paulo. The office facility is a partnership between the state government, the Ministry of Economy and the World Economic Forum (WEF), which signed an agreement yesterday.
“The Center will outline and develop innovative policies. As part of the Forum’s global network, teams will exchange knowledge and scale learning globally,” said Marisol Argueta de Barillas, Latin America director and board member of the World Economic Forum.
“The 4th Industrial Revolution is a theme that meets very well the expectations of the Brazilian government and fully the expectations of the government of the state of Sao Paulo,” said Doria, at the Bandeirantes Palace. The creation of the unit in the country will also be officially made at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, January 2020, and the inauguration of the space in São Paulo will take place during the World Economic Forum for Latin America, in May 2020.
According to the state government, with the measure, Brazil joins a network dedicated to global technology governance with China, Japan, India, Colombia, Israel, United Arab Emirates and the United States – countries where there is already such a center for research and global technology governance dedicated to the 4th Industrial Revolution.
“To achieve impact and drive change in the context of the 4th Industrial Revolution, it is important to connect government, business organizations, startups, civil society, academia and international organizations to devise smart and innovative policies,” said State Secretary Economic Development, Patricia Ellen. . For the state government, the initiative is aligned with the goal of stimulating innovation and entrepreneurship.
The IPT, linked to the state’s Department of Economic Development, recently opened its campus so that private companies can work together with startups, clients, suppliers, researchers, investors and government agencies.
