Spinverse changes the rules of innovation at the Moscow Open Innovations Forum 2013

10 Sep 2013

Rules of Innovation Will Change in Moscow in October

The global discussion platform Open Innovations Forum 2013 will gather more than 10,000 visitors from around the world in Moscow 31st of October – 1st of November to witness top thinkers led by Andrea Wong, the president of Sony Pictures Entertainment, Robert Kirschbaum, the VP of Open Innovation of DSM, and William Aulet, the Managing Director of the MIT Sloan School of Management, addressing today’s critical innovation tendencies.

Finland has the honor of being a country partner of the event this year. As it crucial for the Finns to claim their place in the prime spot of innovation thinking, creativity and growth, the Finnish delegation to Moscow will be led by Jyrki Katainen, the Prime Minister of Finland, and over 50 Finnish pioneering companies will have representation at the Crocus Expo Center to showcase the long standing reputation of Finland as one of the most innovative countries in the world.

Nanotechnology is a Game Changer

Both the scientific community and representatives of the global industry define nanotechnology
as the key technology area of the 21st century that can significantly change the rules of the game in the global market.
Could nanotechnology be a response to the major challenges humanity is currently facing? The speakers of the nanotechnology track on the 1st of November at the Open Innovations Forum certainly think so.

Leopold Demiddeleer, the hydrogen energy visionary of Europe, will show you the hydrogen energy economy in the next decade.

Sergio Kapusta, the Chief Scientist of Shell, will answer the burning issues in the oil and gas industry. Indeed – the development of hydraulic fracturing has changed the rules of the energy politics in the World.

Anatloy Chubais, the CEO of Rusnano, will elaborate on Russian national efforts on changing the economic structure of the country by tools of innovation.

The event promises an eye opening experience as well as a huge opportunity for international collaboration and investment, thus do not miss the nanotechnology track in the agenda of the Forum running throughout the whole day on the 1st of November.

Russian and European CTOs Form a Group of Wise Men

For most European technology leaders, Russia is a “terra incognita” – an uncharted market with wild possibilities. In the first ever Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Forum between Russia and Europe these possibilities have a chance to evolve in concrete business. At the managing R&D session at the Open Innovations Forum on the 31st of October Robert Kirschbaum and Jean Botti (CTO of EADS) will present cases for best practice innovation management in leading industrial companies. Subsequently, 25 Russian CTOs and 25 European CTOs will be provided with the discussion platform to debate about the challenges of transnational R&D collaboration, the barriers of legislation for competitiveness, as well as international collaborative demonstrations and piloting. The results of this dialogue will be delivered to decision makers to Russia and Europe. Perhaps then, also the first deals of collaboration between the companies involved will be announced. Be the first to see it at the CTO Forum session on 1st of November.

See you in Moscow,
