2017 Innovation Congress

Talks Arena

Andrés Jaque / Office for Political Innovation was the organiser of the 2017 Conference on Innovation.

In the last decade innovation has taken on a marked political character in which technology forms part of the disputes and partnerships between politics, culture and design. The Conference on Innovation reviews each phase of the innovation processes in four parts.

Via talks and round tables, the congress analyses the medium and long-term future of construction.

The major themes of the 2017 edition

TRACKS

Observation

Good practices that monitor building conditions to identify opportunities for reinvention. These practices are in some cases more closely related to ethnography, market research and materials evaluation - areas that have become essential for designers and business managers.

TRACKS

Invention

Presentation of inventions successfully reformulating the way in which building relates to everyday life.

TRACKS

Association

A discussion about the process of obtaining support, funding, patents, etc.

TRACKS

Scaling

Scaling is on one hand the point at which invention and innovation are most relevant, but at the same time when new processes begin - maintenance, customer care, guarantees, monitoring, product updating, recycling, catalogue management and rebranding.
