Join us on Thursday, October 16, 2014, for the Institute for Global Innovation Management & IP/Innovation Connection Joint Conference, bringing together academics, entrepreneurs, innovation managers, policy experts, and others, from a variety of disciplines, to discuss Design in today’s world. Design is driving new business strategies and practices, re-shaping markets and redefining demand. Many organizations as well as individuals are trying to incorporate design into their thinking and practices. This includes industries ranging from finance to healthcare. Simultaneously, traditional design methods are being challenged by 3D printing, rapid prototyping and the hacker/maker communities. Participants will hear from early adopters and thought leaders about the impact and challenge of Design in our increasingly competitive and digital world.
