ABOUT EmTech Conference

MIT Technology Review is bringing its globally renowned EmTech conference, which provides access to the most innovative people and companies in the world, to Europe.

Broadcast live from Belfast on July 1 & 2, 2021, EmTech Europe ‘Forging a Brighter Future’ will bring together some of the most brilliant minds in science and technology.

Bringing bold thinking and innovative ideas to life and examining the technologies and forces influencing our rapidly changing world, EmTech Europe will cover areas including AI, Greentech, Health and Ethics. 

The two-day conference will explore the latest advances and trends at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic is adding fuel to the flames of the global climate and economic crises. 

In a world awash with dizzying change, the ground-breaking summit will create a stage where technology, business, and culture can converge. EmTech Europe will showcase emerging technologies with the greatest potential to change our lives. 

In conjunction with MIT, EmTech Europe will bring together the most brilliant minds of the global tech world to reimagine a world where tech transforms lives positively and serves the common good. 

There is no more appropriate location for EmTech Europe than Belfast, a European city which finds itself both inside and outside the EU post-Brexit and which has a global reputation for peacemaking. 

EmTech Europe 2021 – Forging a Brighter Future is broken down into four themes:

  • A Sustainable Future
  • An Intelligent Future 
  • A Healthy Future
