Social Networks for Innovations Conference

Today’s innovation is a social sport. Little modern innovation takes place in secluded skunk works. Instead, innovation in all kinds of organizations is taking place throughout the organization or crossing organizational boundaries. This is not a description of chaos, but rather an efficient process leveraging social networks and collaborative platforms. Join us in a half-day discussion with leaders from industry, education, and government around the boundaries, methods, and tools of this new innovation ecosystem.
