Innovating in a world overcrowded with ideas

Venue: Dokkhuset 

Registration: Registering for the event. Free for day pass/festival pass holders

Siri Lill Mannes

We live in a world awash with ideas. Thanks to open innovation, design thinking, crowdsourcing, and especially to digital technologies, we have easy access to an unprecedented amount of novel opportunities.

  • How to make sense of this overabundance of opportunities?
  • How to envision the next big thing?
  • How to avoid trying everything and fall into the paradox of ideas (the more ideas we create the less we innovate)?

To succeed in an overcrowded world we need a meaningful direction. To focus our creativity and the creativity of others towards a new, shared purpose.

This seminar will show how to take the first crucial step in any innovation journey: the design of a meaningful direction. The seminar insight about the mindset, the process, and the tools you need.

Panel debate

Following Roberto Vergantis speech, he will participate in a panel debate moderated by Siri Lill Mannes. Attendees may also ask questions in a Q&A session at the end of the seminar.
