Creativity and Innovation in Research and Education

发布时间:2017-11-22    浏览次数:1736

ABSTRACT

Innovation has been recognized as the key ingredient for sustained success for everything we do in this highly competitive global environment. However, we have been over-used and its true meaning is getting unclear.  So what is innovation? Or it's more fundamental form, creativity? What are the traits and competencies of a successful innovator? On the other hand, what external factors and actions can easily suppress or kill a budding innovative idea?

In this talk I will elucidate such points with some past personal examples in my own research and some well-known US Companies, such as Kodak, AT&T,..to demonstrate these points, and will attempt to stimulate some  thoughts on potential application of these ideas to enhance the innovative process in research, and in your role as a student,  educator and researchers.
