  • Case studies from diverse business sectors;
  • The role of law and public policy in facilitating the development and deployment of emerging technologies, including the appropriate regulatory frameworks to address environmental challenges;
  • The societal benefits and costs of these technologies;
  • Opportunities for the cross-cutting application of different technologies acting in concert; and
