Framing Innovation in a Networked World

An Interdisciplinary Workshop
Online, 2-3 September 2021

The exponential growth of social networks has opened new avenues for innovators. As the world has shrunk, diffusion of innovations has grown faster, while the number of collaborative inventions has steadily increased. But a networked world has also its challenges. The channels that allow a disease to spread are those that prevent its cure from being accepted. And, with the advent of social media, controversies over innovations have broadened and intensified, becoming more difficult to navigate.

Experts in philosophy, sociology, and history of innovation will meet online to share their ongoing research, discuss new methodologies, and communicate the latest results of their investigations.

Registration is open until 1 Sept. 12:00 AM (CET) through Eventbrite

The workshop Framing Innovation in a Networked World is part of the project Cartesian Networks, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 891747.
