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

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
