Challenges in Collaborative Innovation
Join us on Thursday, November 21, 2013, for the IP/Innovation Connection, a dynamic conference bringing together entrepreneurs, strategists, advisors, policymakers and others operating on the frontiers of innovation — each with a different perspective — to explore developments in innovation, share insights gained from experience and take a fresh look at intellectual property (IP). This year, we will focus on the collaborative innovation environment. Participants will hear from early adapters and thoughtful leaders about the influence and impact of technology, culture and openness. Join us as we explore the challenges for innovators and IP.
Co-sponsored by Northeastern University's School of Law, D'Amore-McKim School of Business and College of Arts, Media and Design
