About the webinar 

Crucial technologies can often fail to be developed due to the mismatch between their social value and market demand. Market shaping tools, like advanced market commitments, address this gap by encouraging the private sector to innovate, with government support minimizing financial risks. Examples include the development of vaccines for pneumococcal disease and COVID-19.

Leah Rosenzweig runs the Market Shaping Accelerator, which is dedicated to finding high-value applications of market shaping within climate change and biosecurity. Leah will talk about research directions she’s excited about, the challenges of coordinating across government and the private sector, and how people with different skills can contribute to this effort. 

We will also be hosting a live Q&A session where participants can ask Leah questions about career paths and opportunities in this domain.
