What is the impact of globalization on innovation?  In this interconnected world of global opportunities and collaboration, this panel will explore the topic of  innovation – from academic research and intellectual property view  to new locally and globally relevant ideas that inspire entrepreneurship in emerging economies. How is innovation nurtured across the world?  Are governments, companies, schools taking advantage of access to technologies and ideas to further innovation?  We will hear from a panel of industry experts on efforts at various levels in the engineering and technology communities to define, evolve and advance innovation.
