Prof. Sang Yup Lee, Distinguished Professor of KAIST and Director of KPC4IR participated in the leadership panel of the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Councils in Dubai in October 2019
The World Economic Forum’s Global Future Councils are the world’s foremost interdisciplinary knowledge network dedicated to promoting innovative thinking to shape a sustainable and inclusive future for all.
The network convenes more than 700 of the most relevant and knowledgeable thought leaders from academia, government, business, and civil society, grouped in expertise-based, thematic councils. It is an invitation-only community, and members are nominated for a one-year period.
During the leadership roundtable, Prof. Sang Yup Lee presented novel ideas on system leadership basing on his long experience as a system innovator at KAIST Institute, where he is working with other world-class Professors to turn Korea into leading innovator and pioneer country of emerging technologies for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
System leadership is an emerging area of interest to global organizations and leading universities such as Harvard. According to the World Economic Forum- Systems leadership is a set of skills and capacities that any individual or organization can use to catalyze, enable and support the process of systems-level change. It combines collaborative leadership, coalition-building, and systems insight to mobilize innovation and action across a large, decentralized network.
