Andreas Raptopoulos, CEO and co-Founder of Matternet.us, will be discussing the creation of a new network for the transportation of matter, focusing on economic potential and the possibilities of leapfrogging existing transport infrastructure. Key potential outcomes include:
- allowing access to medical goods in lesser developed countries.
- improving everyday access to goods in our cities and megacities.
Case studies related to transporting medicine and diagnostics in Bhutan and Papua New Guinea will be discussed as a way to reflect on the work that is ongoing in this field.
