Many of the innovations have environmental implications, as well.

The forum is a follow-up to the previous forum in 2020, as there will be a need to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic also in the future. In the Forum, we shall discuss what kind of bottom-up innovations have been developed, how viable they are, and how they have been met on the policy level.
