Lecture 2:  Seven Shocks for Finland: A Case Study
Tuesday, March 19; 4:00-5:00 pm
Exposition of an exercise carried out in Finland recently, which illustrates how one might approach the question of shocks to a society and how to prepare today for a very uncertain future. This lecture presents several lessons on how researchers can communicate with decision-makers in government and industry to help them understand real-world rather than purely academic problems of pressing concern.
