The IAFOR Global Innovation & Value Summit 2018 will be held in Tokyo, one of the world’s greatest cities, and brings together some of the biggest names in business in Japan. The conference will consider and contextualise questions of innovation and value with a focus on innovation ecosystems in the global, regional and local ecosystem of Japan.
The Summit comprises both a powerful one-day symposium, and a two-day academic conference that explore the ideas in more depth.The Symposium will bring together a number of high profile keynote speakers to set the scene and speak to the theme of the conference, before then continuing with four plenary panels looking at questions of innovation and value. The first will look at Heritage companies in Japan, as with more than 50 percent of the world’s companies over 200 years old, the country offers excellent case studies of companies which have had to repeatedly innovate to survive. The next two panels will offer contrastive insights and perspectives from both big companies and start-ups, and the final panel will look at policy from the side of government and education.
Prof. Dr. Dieter Georg Adlmaier-Herbst will talk about „Four Innovations Toward Creaiting a Productive Culture of Innovation“.
