IASP World Conference- Virtual Event
October 6 - October 9
37th IASP World Conference on Science Parks and Areas of Innovation
Due to the impact of the ongoing pandemic, we have had to cancel our physical event for this year, but we are committed to turn this setback into an opportunity and have begun to work hard on the organisation of a great virtual event, to give our global community the chance to come together despite the crisis.
Instead of meeting in Sevilla in 2020 you will get the opportunity to visit this beautiful city in 2022 where PCT Cartuja will welcome you for the 39th IASP World Conference.
Knowledge and technology are created and developed by individuals working within systems, networks, and organisations. The knowledge economy means that knowledge has become the greatest asset for companies that want to compete in the global market, overtaking the preeminent role that machines, big facilities and a large but less-educated workforce had in the classic industrial economy. The role of educated and skilled individuals has become more important than ever before. Talent, skills and personal creativity, which are features conducive to knowledge and its transformation into products, services and a new business culture, have become the main asset for companies, but also for society in general.
Accordingly, the new spaces built for today’s companies have to be designed with the needs and preferences of individuals in mind. To succeed in their mission, innovation ecosystems cannot simply think of themselves as places for companies: more comprehensive and complex environments must be created to make them attractive to individuals as well.
We want to gain deeper knowledge of the human factor in our industry. What are the strategic implications of adopting a human-centred philosophy? How does bearing individuals in mind as well as companies influence our hardware (landscaping, buildings, basic infrastructure…) and our software (networking, services, etc.)?
More details will be shared shortly, stay tuned!
