ICT-Led Innovation in the Caribbean : "Connect to Innovate and Grow" :: Lorna Green

  1. 1. ICT-Led Innovation in the Caribbean “Connect to Innovate and Grow”
  2. 2. Silburn’s Take Home Messages Let’s structure economic payoffs to favour innovators and innovating firms in order to drive sustainability, flexibility and competitiveness. Let’s expand and infuse creative thinking, creative problem finding and solving within schools, universities and firms. Let’s foster a process, structure and culture of innovation using the Triple Helix Approach
  3. 3. Ilari’s Innovation Policy Take Home Message Innovation eco-systems thrive when platforms for promoting collaborative partnerships are established, e.g. • • • • • • Public – private partnerships Integration of users and customers with innovation processes Innovation forums Innovation and technology platforms at national, regional and local levels Collaboration ventures of any kind Intersectoral and inter-ministerial collaboration Where and with whom would you establish your first open innovation platform?
  4. 4. Jeff’s Open Data and Open Government Take Home Message If governments are active partners in an ecosystem - willing to invest, experiment and even fail (on a small scale) – they will see real innovations spring from their Open Government and Open Data efforts. If you could have 1 dataset from government, what would it be? If you could give feedback to improve 1 government service, which one would it be?
  5. 5. Rob’s Crowdsourcing Take Home Messages Whether for emergency response or civic affairs: crowdsourcing is happening, and we have best practices to allow us to do it smarter. Let’s harness crowdsourcing to improve public services and entrepreneurship. What existing services could benefit from a direct connection with the public as information provider? What major challenges in your country could benefit from crowdsourcing applications?
