We share experiences of failures and successes when moving from pilots to impact. And by stories we mean that, a conversational approach with no PowerPoints. We interview the protagonists and ask them what they learnt and their recommended best practices.
There is a need for meta-innovation. That is innovation on how we support innovation. Do current instruments need to be so complex? What are the alternatives? How do we move from a TRL7 to a 9? And from 9 to procurement? Can other sources of funding be tapped for innovation procurement?
Connecting with colleagues is a fundamental part of the conference. We devote ample time for it during breaks and the conference dinner on the 15th. We will wear des- criptive badges to facilitate peer discovery.
Whole audience debates are complemented with exchanges into smaller groups. In each group, participants exchange their experiences and/or work on a real-world use case. We collect the outputs and put them together in the documentation you take back home. If you want to propose a use case.
