Science ‘UnSummit’ 2012
5/25/12 update: Session Notes are posted here
‘Innovation – A Global Conversation’ is a working conference to convene scientists, the tech sector, and the public to explore the leading edge of innovation.
Yámana Science and Technology welcomes you to the home-page for The Science ‘UnSummit’ Series. We are excited to announce the Science ‘UnSummit’ 2012, held at the Artisphere in Arlington Virginia April 23rd – 25th, 2012 is now complete!
LEARN...about new developments and emerging trends that are currently driving major system changes, going beyond competition and into truly collaborative space - even amongst former competitors. Find out why the Council on Competitiveness is embracing collaboration.... with other countries. And why the design community is creating a powerful partnership with science.
EXPLORE…how cross-functional teams, communication, and open leadership can inform the science of innovation, and support innovation at the forefront of science and technology.
ENGAGE…in dynamic panel discussions and Open Space conversations with peers - scientists, thought-leaders and innovators - as we unleash our individual and collective leadership to develop new ideas and nurture current successes on the innovation frontier.
INNOVATION – A Global Conversation is a program that will utilize the tools of Open Space to explore the landscape of innovation – what is needed to nurture this hallmark of success, and what obstacles currently impede its expansion.
We will be helping Tobias Mayer bring
TECHNOLOGY MEETS SCIENCE - as a workshop on improved collaboration, human relationships, and productivity
to the Washington DC area later this year. This all-day workshop -- Technology Meets Science - will cover improved collaboration, human relationships, and productivity - is designed to share practices for increased productivity and innovation that can be applied across an entire organization—any kind of organization. This workshop is based on the values and principles that underpin the Agile movement, currently embraced by much of the IT industry to improve collaboration and productivity through the lens of human relationship.
Through these tools, providing new ways of interacting and thinking, we seek to provide an accelerator for innovation. Participation from both basic science and business sectors will support collaboration at all stages of the innovation front – from recruitment to pipeline development to working together in innovative ways. The workshop will be lead by Tobias Mayer.
