The United States has been an innovation leader since the end of World War II as it took to heart Vannevar Bush's 1945 report Science: The Endless Frontier. As the world entered the 2000s, more and more countries have focused on improving and building their own innovation systems. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, recognizing this trend, asked the IDA Science and Technology Policy Institute to survey the innovation systems of Brazil, South Korea, and Russia and provide insights on current and future innovation trends. The talk will explore the complex set of factors that are brought to bear on countries' industrial and innovation policies, and highlight the role of governance and culture underlying both successes and failures in innovation policies. Scientific and technological breakthroughs overseas can create new opportunities or new competitive challenges for the United State. While still a leader in many fields, the United States also will be well served to learn from the innovative policies of other countries as well as following new developments in science and technology.

Gluski, President & Chief Executive Officer, AES Corporation Elly Keinan, General Manager, North America, IBM Steve Long, VP & Latin America General Manger, Intel Corporation This panel will explore transformative innovations with the potential of changing how we live and work, while asking how more companies can innovate to solve today's most important challenges. 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.

Technology and energy are inextricably linked, with technological innovation playing a defining role in the production systems of energy sources, energy transmission and delivery systems and how the end user manages and consumes energy. On the supply side, technologies applied to shale and offshore oil and gas extraction are transforming the industry and global energy markets. Alongside fossil fuel developments are breakthroughs in alternative energy technologies that are critical to meeting global energy demands sustainably. For distribution and transmission, smart grid technology is revolutionizing electricity networks, providing significant improvements to grid efficiency and opportunities for increased integration of renewables. For the end-user, technology's role in how consumers manage and use energy in their homes and businesses offers significant opportunities for energy efficiency gains, the low hanging fruit of clean energy.

So, let's get something clear here. Israel gets billions of dollars in military and foreign aid from the United States -- especially aid involving the high technology sector. In turn, Israel goes and makes 'deals' with Russia, China, and India -- selling this technology and collaborating on developing more technology from it all and subsequently using it against real American interests. The JCIC, which was established in 2014, is an important G2G platform between Israel and China, that promotes innovation cooperation in various fields and encompasses ministries and government agencies from the two countries, as well as leading universities and research institutions. The JCIC is co-chaired by Israel's Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Benjamin Netanyahu and China's Vice Premier Madam Liu Yandong with the aim of enhancing the Win-Win cooperation between the two countries. The 1st Meeting of the JCIC took place in Beijing in January 2015 and a Three-Years Action Plan was then signed by Vice Premier Liu Yandong and former Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman. The 2nd meeting was successfully concluded in Jerusalem on March 2016.

The Nordic countries are established global leaders with regards to gender equality, healthcare, innovation, environmental stewardship and education. The World Economic Forum’s 2016 Global Gender Gap Report ranked Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden as the top four countries for gender equality. And according to the European Commission report, 94% of Finns, 90% of Swedes and 87% of Danes are satisfied with their healthcare. The Global Innovation Index also ranked Sweden the second most innovative economy last year, with the other Nordics solidly and consistently in the top 25. What explains these impressive figures?

The Multinational World: how cities and regions win or lose in the global innovation contest Recorded on 15 November 2017 The process of technological development constantly opens windows of opportunity for new innovation centres to emerge around the world. What makes it possible for some cities and regions to join the exclusive ‘world innovation club’? Why are other places persistently excluded or lose their membership? Scholarly and policy debates attempt to identify factors at the national, regional or city level to ‘ignite’ innovation and boost productivity and employment in stagnating areas of the world. Our understanding is more limited of the transformative power of the flows of capital, skills and knowledge bundled into increasingly complex value chains, often controlled by multinational firms. This inaugural lecture by Riccardo Crescenzi will discuss the conceptual foundations and new empirical evidence from across the globe on the link between internationalisation, multinational firms’ strategies and local innovation and prosperity. The lecture will first discuss how multinationals decide where to locate different types of foreign activities along the value chain and how this process leads to ‘matching’ between firms and host regions. The second part will look at the consequences of these decisions and strategies for world cities and regions, drawing upon examples from Europe, the United States, China, India, Russia and Latin America. The final part will address the role of public policies and discuss how mayors, regional governors and national governments can effectively leverage global investment flows and value chains for innovation and recovery after the Great Recession. The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Research Council under the European Union Horizon 2020 Programme H2020/2014-2020) (Grant Agreement n 639633-MASSIVE-ERC-2014-STG).
