Innovation in perspectives and worldviews is what we are looking for this year. How can we look at our old and familiar problems through the glasses of innovation? The world will change if we adopt a slightly different perspective and a slightly different attitude. Dogmas and glass ceilings need to be broken by us. For a better tomorrow, INNOVATION is the key, innovation in thoughts and actions, innovation in any discipline conceivable to the human mind. We are looking forward to some extraordinary sparkling ideas converging to this line of thought.
We are looking for individuals who can share their story with a multifarious audience. We aim to keep our talk as multidisciplinary as possible, innovative ideas will be focused upon.
