4IR Revolution:  A Tactical Quadruple Helix Debate

The 2020 Nelson Mandela Bay Leadership Summit will once again host presentations by top South African thought leaders, key opinion makers, and captains of industry to an executive audience.

We acknowledge that with the advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), countries develop new policies, strategies and innovation plans to enable an inclusive approach with Government playing a leadership responsibility. We affirm our commitment to a Quadruple Helix model of collaboration and it is our intention to leverage such capital for the benefit of all South Africans. As stated in the Government Gazette, 4 December 2018: “South Africa currently has different elements of the 4IR spread across Government, the private sector and civil society.   While the discourse on the 4IR is usually dominated by the role of government and the private sector, other stakeholders in civil society such as academia, women and youth also have a significant role to play to ensure overall buy-in by all role players in society. The 4IR manifests itself through technological innovations its impact cuts across all levels of society hence the need for a broader perspective and approach”.

The 2020 NMB Leadership Summit is precisely aimed at bringing together Government, Business, Academia and the Community and is aptly titled:  “4IR: A Quadruple Helix Debate”.
