Paradigms of innovation that transform economies
    Friday July 13, 2012 4:00pm - 5:30pm @ Wicklow Hall 1

    This session will present four landmark cases of innovation capacity building drawn from the EU, the Russian Federation, and the US. Senior leaders from these initiatives will describe their strategies, experience and results to date.  Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions and interact informally with the participants from these key initiatives to share learning and explore opportunities.

    The participants come from

    • The Business, Innovation and Technology (BIT) Research Centre of Aalto University - a significant driver of innovation in Finland, already an innovation leader in the EU.
    • Science Foundation Ireland - a paradigm setter in creating innovation systems. The model employed in Ireland has been repeated in Arizona.
    • The San Diego CONNECT program - an early and very successful innovation flagship development in the US.

    The session will culminate in the announcement of plans and opportunities in Russia following the establishment of the largest and most ambitious innovation project on continental Europe for many years: the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology which is being established in collaboration with MIT.

    After the formal session, there is an opportunity for further discussions with the participants.
