Trinity of biotech, nanotech and IT to define 21st century

Abstract:
The first half of the 21st century will be defined by advances in biotechnology, nanotechnology and information technology. And scientists will be pressed into networks of editors responsible for managing vast amounts of knowledge, an acclaimed scholar and economist told siliconrepublic.com.
Dr Malcolm Gillis (pictured), a former professor of economics at Harvard and current professor of economics at Rice University in Texas where he was previously president, has dedicated 35 years of his life to applying economic analysis to important issues in more than 20 countries.

Dr Gillis was in Dublin last week as a guest of FÁS and delivered a lecture ‘Perspectives on 21st Century Technology' at the Royal Irish Academy.
