ORGANISING COMMITTEE

Made up of representatives from 9 social organisations of Innobasque, it is a key element in the design and development of the project, acting as “ambassadors” and participating in the different phases, such as: definition of the event model; selection of contents, proposing topics and speakers; publicity campaign; promotion of the collaboration or networking among the participant organisations; etc.

SOMOS #GLOBAL COMMUNITY

Virtual community, with periodic physical meetings, made up by the people and organisations taking part in the Global Innovation Day, that contribute contents, that is, organising txocos and workshops, as speakers in the conference panels or as collaborators of the project.

You don’t know what you are looking for until you find it…

2- CONCEPTION. CREATION OF CREATIVE SOLUTIONS, GIVING PRIORITY TO THE AMOUNT OF IDEAS OVER QUALITY, THROUGH A CONTINUOUS DIVERGENCE AND CONVERGENCE PROCESS.

Can you imagine a better world?

3- GROWTH. PROTOTYPING AND ESCALATION OF IDEAS.

Small movements, made intelligently, can start up great ideas.

4- CONNECTION WITH ONESELF AND WITH OTHERS TO GENERATE INNOVATION COMMUNITIES.

People-centred innovation

The Campus, which combines theory and practice, will enable:

  • Gaining a more in-depth knowledge of the different phases of innovation, first-hand from professionals and experts who will approach us to new ways of thinking and acting.
  • Reflecting on the strategies to reduce the gap between ideas and action.
  • Working towards a new innovative culture.
