There’s good news from The Economist. A whole new meeting ground that will incubate innovations, intelligent infrastructure and human potential. Just the setting, for a collaborative marketplace in an ideas economy.




From the vantage point of The Economist, innovative thinking and the advancement of good ideas can spur human progress. And this is really the objective behind a new series of events that brings together top thinkers from around the world. An event that will draw comment, debate and discussion on the most important ideas of our time. 

Setting the ball rolling
“Innovation: Fresh thinking for the ideas economy,” is the theme for the inaugural event being held at the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, on March 23 and 24. 

Essentially seen as more than a discussion forum, the event has been planned and structured to fuse creativity with action. The multi-part, multimedia forum promises to be ground-breaking - opening new perspectives to innovation and innovative thinking. 

According to the organizers, “This event will expand and possibly overturn established thinking about what innovation is, where it comes from, and how to make it work.”

The canvas here is Innovation, Intelligent Infrastructure, and Human Potential within an ecosystem that facilitates the cycle of development - from concept to implementation.

Calling today’s top global innovators
The share of voice at this event will draw some of today’s most celebrated innovators, who will probe, explore, dissect and reassemble the process of innovative thinking. Their focus will examine historical milestones and the challenges of the twenty-first century.

While the core objective is to define the constructs of an ideas economy, the organizers visualize a progressive ripple effect – improve customer relationships, develop new products and services, explore untapped markets and fine tune efficiency. Regardless of geography or industry, innovation re-defines the growth curve of an organization – it gives R&D a whole new dimension.
