  • Good afternoon The title of my talk is “Science In Place: Designing Spaces for Open, Networked Innovation” I chose this title because there is a lot of talk about innovation going on around the world right now – because of the energy challenges, because of the global economy But there has not been much discussion about how we can build places that enable this much-needed innovation   We need to remind Policymakers scientists and engineers and innovation managers about the important role that places plays in collaborative innovation.
