This is a bilingual (German and Estonian) collection of the presentations and speeches that were given during the conference. Wide variety of topics covered issues from the tension between science and society to science, technology and knowledge-based society.

The purpose of the conference was to open up the notion of knowledge-based society and to view how far Estonian and German societies are from that and what kind of difficulties could come with that. The key speakers of the conference were director of the Academia Europaea professor Carl Friedrich Gethmann, president of Estonian Academy of Sciences professor Jüri Engelbrecht, vice president of Deutche Bundesbank Jürgen Sark and president of the Bank of Estonia Vahur Kraft.
