Disruptive technological change seems to be a constant, but is it really changing the way companies and people operate as much as innovations in the past have? Are incremental advances delivering on the promise of value and impact? This panel will discuss Brazil as an example of reverse innovation and will gather senior leaders in technology, planning, engineering, and design to discuss trends in R&D and what it takes to truly advance innovation. 10:30am (1:51:30) | Plenary Session THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT | INSTITUTIONAL INNOVATION Presiding: Ricardo Sennes, Partner, Prospectiva International Consulting David Barioni Neto, President, Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex Brasil) The Honorable Armando Monteiro, Minister, Ministry of Development, Industry, and Foreign Trade, Brazil Julio Ramundo, Director, BNDES This session will focus on Brazilian R&D, exploring public policies and incentive programs.

Now they must be just as good at doing it the other way round, developing promising innovations in emerging markets and distributing them globally. The fundamental driver for reverse innovation is the income gap between emerging and developed markets. As success stories in Brazil become more and more common, business leaders from around the globe are rethinking strategy and corporate structure to realize the potential of reverse innovation as a significant driver for growth.

In which John asks whether globalization is a net positive for humanity. While the new global economy has created a lot of wealth, and lifted a lot of people out of poverty, it also has some effects that aren't so hot. Wealth disparity, rising divorce rates, environmental damage, and new paths for the spread of disease. So does all this outweigh the economic benefits, the innovation, and the relative peace that come with interconnected economies? As usual, the answer is not simple. In this case, we're living in the middle of the events we're discussing, so it's hard to know how it's going to turn out.

Assistant Professor of Government at Franklin and Marshall College Nina Kollars shares her studies on innovation, suggesting that it is a bottom-up process. Although some may understand innovation as a fancy operation controlled by the elite leaders of the world, Kollars proposes that it is actually people on-the-ground who are the most innovative members of society. Nina Kollars is Assistant Professor of Government at Franklin & Marshall College. Dr. Kollars' research investigates the processes by which individuals and groups innovate and adapt when in high-stakes contexts with inadequate resources. She is a committed researcher on pedagogy and active learning processes. Her work has been published in the Journal of Strategic Studies, Security Studies, Survival, and most recently in International Studies Perspectives. She holds a Ph.D. in Political Science with a specialization in Security Studies from The Ohio State University, and an M.A. in International Relations from George Washington University. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
