Keynote: Dr. Laura Matz – Chief Science and Technology Officer Merck

The power of yes

Description

The world is changing faster than ever before, offering an opportunity for women in STEM to advance and accelerate their careers. The key is to say YES, looking for opportunities to grow into new areas and answer the call when a significant challenge is brought to you. Seeking these opportunities for learning new skills, albeit in the digital realm or otherwise, can create a strong differentiation and potential for advancement.

Laura will share her experiences and significant pivots in her career where she responded with “YES” to a challenge and demonstrate how this changed the course of her career.

Knowledge Session I

Digital Twin, NFC Technology and Blockchain

Description

Imagine if you could connect your physical products with the digital world and have them forever safe on the blockchain? That is what we do at collectID. We connect physical products and create their digital twin through the use of NFC technology. The NFC tag is integrated on the physical product and with a simple smartphone scan you can unlock the NFT of your product and use it in the metaverse. This allows customers to have the digital version of their products and ensure products are authentic. At the same time, it allows brands a direct marketing channel and the acquisition of first-party data about their customers. At collectID we are turning products into a communication channel and bridging the gap between the physical and the digital worlds.
