What is science? What is technology? What is innovation?
These three terms are how we begin to understand the Dakila ecosystem.
And what is science?
The Greek word ἐπιστήμη (epistêmê) is usually translated as "knowledge". On the basis of knowledge, the Latin languages derived "scientia", i.e. science. To be aware is to know, to have science, to have knowledge of something. Since the beginning of recent human history, the word 'science' has represented several ideas: a library full of books; a company full of chemical reagents; or a classroom full of students. They all represent science, but the word is much more complex than that.
Science is both a body of knowledge and a process. It may seem isolated and unchanging in the book, but it gives rise to other discoveries that may even disprove what it says. Science is therefore a means of spreading knowledge and discovering how the universe has worked, how it works and how it will work.
Being a scientist means constantly refining and expanding our knowledge (epistêmê) of the universe, leading us to new questions for further research. Science is never "finished" and the knowledge generated is powerful and reliable because it can be used to cure diseases, develop infrastructure and solve many other types of problems through technology.
But then, what is technology?
The word was born in the Indo-European "tek", which sought to identify the skills of building basic dwellings with acacia wood. Shortly afterwards, the Greeks coined the word "τέχνη" (techne) to denote the specialised skills of transforming matter in order to create with special hands what did not exist before.
In the Industrial Revolution (1760s), the Germans began to spread the word "die Technik", i.e. technique . It gave rise to the word technology that we have today, which permeates the research and development (R&D) that accelerated with the emergence of industry in the 20th century. XIX and demonstrated innovation through the progress of science in European societies of the time.
With science and technology comes innovation. And what are they?
The word "innovation" comes from the Latin verb "inovare", meaning to renew. In fact, the word has retained its meaning to this day. Innovation means improving or replacing something, such as a process, product or service. Value creation is a defining characteristic of innovation and is the special instrument of great managers, whether public or private. The act of endowing resources with a new capacity to create wealth, which in turn increases people's happiness, always brings about major and - as a rule - positive change.
By combining these three concepts (science, technology and innovation), we will have the Dakila ecosystem.
All its members, whether individuals, groups, organisations or companies, use them to guide all their efforts and ensure that everything we promote is aimed at the global technological frontier. We must always use our science and that of our partners to work with the most up-to-date, innovative technologies.
With the redesign of this website and our media channels, we are entering a new era where our Dakila ecosystem will be there for all of us and our partners. The hand that will lead humanity into the future.
We hope that you and yours will take it in body and soul.
Welcome to the future of Dakila. Welcome to the future of humanity.
Dear members and sympathisers of Dakila.
We would like to inform you that due to an emergency situation and the inability of Urandir and other guests from Brazil to arrive in Slovenia, the Rogla 2023 event will be postponed to the spring of 2024.
Those of you who have already purchased tickets for the Rogla 2023 event will be able to use them at that time. The deposits you have paid to book your accommodation will also apply then. We will inform you about the postponed event when we have more information from Brazil. We sincerely apologise for the situation and ask for your understanding and patience. Ultimately and in the actual direction, things will always fall into place and unfold in the best way for all involved.
