GIVS 2018 : IAFOR Global Innovation & Value Conference 2018
Call For Papers
***Conference Theme: "The Spirit of Innovation"
Innovation has been defined as invention brought to market, which in turn generates value for a firm and its key stakeholders including its customers, clients, partners, society and the planet. While the models of innovation that have captured the attention of the global media tend to celebrate technical innovation and growth, other models and modes of innovation are equally if not more compelling in their scope and impact.
The focus of this conference then is to push the limits of our understanding of Innovation within both local and global contexts, the mindset that drives Innovation within organisations, communities and countries, and the value outcomes that grow out of these efforts. Specifically, this conference will generate discussion and explore answers around the following six streams:
The Innovation Mindset
Value System Innovation
Energy and Environmental Innovation
The IAFOR Global Innovation & Value Conference 2018 is a multidisciplinary conference held in Tokyo, Japan. Keynote, Featured and Spotlight Speakers will provide a variety of perspectives from different academic and professional backgrounds.
In conjunction with our Global Partners, we look forward to extending you a warm welcome in 2018.
