Cradle to cradle, utopie ou prochaine révolution industrielle ? | greenchemistry | Scoop.it
Dorénavant, à l'image de la nature qui ne produit pas de déchets mais les consomme comme nutriments, tout produit sera biodégradable ou recyclable à l'infini. C'est ce que prédisent, dès 1987, Bill Mc Donough et Mickael Braungart.

FORUM INNOVATION V: The new industrial alliance

 

The competitive strategies drawn up by firms and the « strategies of political power » laid down by States would appear to be able to converge on new alliances bringing an Expanded Industrial Model to emerge. From an economics standpoint, this model can be defined as the combinations of hard and soft applications, born of key technologies, which qualify for both material and symbolic use, meeting both the concrete needs of societies but also the expectations of cultural ideology. We would like to solicit the reflection of the participants to a symposium, organized by ISERAM and to be held on Thursday April 5th 2012, at the Maison de l’Europe in Paris, starting from the perspectives that such a model opens up. The themes discussed will be articulated around the three axes of the New Industrial Alliance: Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Financing…

European technological roadmaps, green chemistry and biomass projects

The future is coming and technological proposals for 2020 in European Union as well.

 

"Renewable Energy Technology Roadmap 20% by 2020" report deals with several foresight scenarios and technological trajectories that we could benefit - or not -.

 

But, as innovation, it might be difficult to anticipate fails or successes. Technological hopes and "futurity" notion used by the economist Commons in the 30's should be more understood.
