Innovation is power. From a politician’s lips to a researcher’s fingertips, the allure of innovation has the power to move people, drive economies and spark exciting new trends. While a single innovative idea can create a profitable company, sustainable long-term innovation needed to create a globally competitive city, region, or country often requires a fundamental re-gearing of that society. It requires deep cooperation between the public sector, the private sector, and universities. It requires a wealth of ideas in the form of talent hubs – concentrations of highly talented people who are willing to network, to solve challenges, to share ideas.
