Jorn Bettin will talk about challenges that go beyond the established framework of research in industry, government and academia.
The healthcare sector, the primary industries, and related technological innovators are key pillars of New Zealand's economy. However, in most cases, breakthrough innovation is the result of intensive interdisciplinary research and development, often drawing on insights from disciplines that may lie beyond the focus of attention and the capabilities of a particular organisation, faculty, or government initiative. Whilst exponential improvements in communication have transformed our economy, they have also put into sharp focus the limits of the ability of organisational cultures to adapt to new contexts. Our cognitive limits prevent us from better understanding the full implications of all our actions. It is time to stop confusing innovation with entertaining stories, and to shift from a culture of sick busyness to an appreciation of the value of life.
