ISTF’s mission is to convene strategists, key opinion leaders and relevant stakeholders from research, management, and the corporate world to share practical, groundbreaking insights from the front lines of their work. The role of these experts is to challenge participants to answer a specific question or to solve a particular issue under the broad topic of “Rethinking Surveillance”. We call these experts ‘Challengers’, and each Challenger works with two groups of participants over the four days of the Forum.
Each participant gets assigned to a workgroup of seven international members and tackles one of the Challenges with the support of dedicated coaches. Groups will follow a structured innovation process and get inspiration for their work from the Challengers, Keynote speeches, panel discussions, impulse speeches, and during informal and formal exchanges with other groups. At the end of the Forum each team will present their ideas in a short elevator pitch at the public closing event.
