Key themes of VivaTech 2023

The importance of technology and innovation across diverse sectors is poised to increase significantly over time. This year, VivaTech, a prominent tech event, is dedicating special attention to areas of technology that have the potential to shape society in profound and novel ways.

To begin with, the first theme of VivaTech 2023 is artificial intelligence (AI). It has already made an astonishing impact across various markets and is playing a significant role in numerous human activities.

Furthermore, the Climate Tech and Clean Tech space presents a unique opportunity for Europe to emerge as a global leader. European startups and enterprises are spearheading the charge by introducing innovative solutions to address environmental challenges, ultimately improving quality of life on Earth.

Inclusion and diversity in the workplace constitute another crucial theme at VivaTech, as they are catalysts for creating better businesses and societies.

Moreover, it is vital to address the underrepresentation of women in the tech industry. Efforts should be made to ensure that more women are included in VivaTech and other tech-related businesses, fostering a more diverse and inclusive ecosystem.

Additionally, in collaboration with Global Sports Week, VivaTech aims to revolutionize the sports industry by exploring the ways in which cultural, technological, and environmental changes will impact this sector.

Ultimately, VivaTech’s expansion and success hinge upon active collaboration and concerted efforts among countries to engage with these themes and drive innovation forward.
