Global Policy Review Podcast | What Needs to Change?

Bridging the Gap Between Game-Changing Technologies and Regulatory Impediments for Equitable Societal Benefits

Game-changing technologies are emerging with ever-greater frequency, but regulators march to a much slower beat. Scepticism breeds mistrust, leading to global inaction. How can we help policymakers to pick up the tempo?

Access Partnership’s flagship podcast, Global Policy Review, explores the interplay between innovation and its regulatory impediments, outlining how we can leverage the former to remove the latter. Each month, special guests spanning the fields of government relations, policy analysis, and compliance and licencing will discuss how to accelerate tech’s diffusion into the markets that need it most.

In the first episode, CEO Gregory Francis, Head of Fair Tech Policy Peter Lovelock, and Head of Policy Implementation Samantha Torrance examine various issues impacting the regulatory landscape, building on the challenges and opportunities outlined in Access Partnership’s Tech Policy Trends 2023 report.

From AI and quantum computing to robotics and the metaverse, new technologies must arrive fairly and equitably to ensure beneficial outcomes across society. But first, they must arrive. Self-imposed restrictions at national and regional levels are denying tomorrow’s solutions the opportunity to address the challenges of today. What needs to change?
