As the world faces increasing pressure to transition to a cleaner energy future, addressing these energy grand challenges requires more innovative solutions, which are highlighted and featured at the CERAWeek Innovation Agora.

It is also a forum to learn and connect, including an exciting program with many sessions and formats designed to facilitate meaningful dialogue and stimulate new thinking and learning.

The CERAWeek Innovation Agora program covers a wide array of transformational technology platforms ranging from digitalization, AI, analytics, and connectivity to robotics, blockchain, additive manufacturing and mobility, and including a continued focus on new technologies for decarbonization. We have a remarkable community of technologists, investors, thought leaders, government officials and corporate innovators—all dedicated to creating new pathways and solutions for our energy future.
