Join us in Cambridge for the Future of Open Innovation Practices Day, on February 13th 2019.

This full day of interactive workshops and talks will showcase tangible mechanisms for facilitating stakeholder interaction to ensure science’s impact on society and the markets.

Expect valuable insights from both Academia and Industry, with keynote speeches from Dr John C Taylor, Professor of Innovation at the University of Cambridge and Head of the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM), Dr. Tim Minshall, and RICARDO's Chief Technology and Innovation Officer, Neville Jackson.

The event is the culmination of EC funded project Science2Society, researching the future of interaction between universities, industries and broader society as a whole. Science2Society is one of very few projects that explore the future of innovation ecosystem interaction mechanisms, particularly borrowing best practices from Internet 2.0 and 3.0 platforms and communities.

The consortium is excited to share their key findings and recommendations with attendees, to support the ongoing innovation learning process.

Join the upcoming ISPIM Connects Ottawa: Innovation for Local and Global Impact held by ISPIM in Ottawa, Canada.

ISPIM is running a challenge-based innovation conference we are running in Ottawa in April.

Why challenge-based?
Well, we feel that this way we can better engage people whilst also delivering a conference that will provide the host city with greater impact. Working closely with our local partners in Ottawa, we have selected three critical challenges that are also of global importance: - Scaling Startups - Adopting AI and Analytics - Innovating with Government

We will be discussing what role innovation can play in solving these challenges and have a series of keynote presentations, discussion panels, workshops and site visits all aimed to address these challenges as well as other innovation management hot-topics.

The conference also includes some great networking social events. Headline speakers include Sir Terry Matthews (Wesley Clover International), Roseann O’Reilly Runte (Canada Foundation for Innovation) and John Shannon (National Research Council Canada)

Why attend?

– What do you need to bring?
Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team!

The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span technical, social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely!
