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: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
