During difficult economic times, firms tend to invest less in innovation. The Great Recession comes at a time when the locus of innovation is according to some shifting to faster-growing, emerging market economies. As a thorough knowledge of innovation is important to firms, nations and the global community, the symposium seeks to answer pressing questions about the potential of innovation, what drives it, and how it is changing.
