We are living in an era where technological advances are common and accelerate progress on sustainable development goals.

Research questions related to this theme are: How could we be sure in advance that the changes that new technologies bring will make our society more sustainable? What if technological solutions to problems are creating or aggravating other problems? And how did our technological choices in the past affect our current societal challenges? 

ICATH’2021 aims to pave the way toward achieving sustainable development goals by highlighting technological innovations in human-centred approaches.

ICATH’2021 will be a trigger for further related research and technology improvements in this important subject. It provides a high-level international forum and an excellent venue for scientists, researchers, students and industry leaders.
