2nd ISPIM Innovation Symposium - Stimulating Recovery The Role of Innovation Management

02.06.2009
The 2nd ISPIM Innovation Symposium Stimulating Recovery The Role of Innovation Management will be held in New York City, USA on 6-9 December 2009.

Organised by ISPIM and hosted by The Fashion Institute of Technology this symposium will bring together academics, business leaders, consultants and other professionals involved in innovation management.

The symposium format will include facilitated themed sessions for academic and practitioner presentations together with interactive workshops and discussion panels. Additionally, the symposium will provide excellent networking opportunities together with a taste of local New York culture.

Economies around the world are displaying similar symptoms in a global downturn: profits and investment is disappearing, companies are failing and unemployment is rising. These chaotic and uncertain economic circumstances have required companies and governments to define and implement innovative actions to ensure survival and stimulate recovery.

High uncertainty calls for creative and innovative management. Consumers and businesses still have needs, but what are the best ways to address them? How do we develop such creative strategies? What innovative solutions deal with today's problems and still strengthen business and economic innovation in the long run? How should we manage innovation in the current climate? Those companies and governments that can answer these questions will not only survive the economic crisis, but will emerge in a strengthened strategic position as recovery takes root.

Submissions from academics, consultants and managers on innovation-related topics are strongly encouraged and should focus on the following:

Collaboration and open innovation
Commercialising and financing innovation
Entrepreneurship & intrapreneurship
Innovating business models
Innovation and IP
Innovation policy for economic recovery
Integrating innovation practice into education
Lean innovation
Managing innovation to stimulate recovery
Measuring and managing innovation
Methods and tools for innovation
Networks and regions of innovation
Organisational creativity & idea generation
Training and leadership for innovation
Important Submission Deadlines:
13 September 2009: Outlines Only (All Academic and Practitioner Submissions)
27 September 2009: Acceptance Notification
8 November 2009: Final Submissions (including papers, slides, profiles & photos) together with registration and payment

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
