Stimulating Innovation and Creativity In Education: Sharing Of Practises Across the Atlantic
Plan to join us in lovely San Sebastian in the Basque region of Spain for the May 1-4, 2011 TA3 meeting on innovation and creativity. The event is co-sponsored by TA3 and the Tknika Centre for Innovation in Basque supported by the Basque Department of Education. Events on May 1-2 are open to all and the May 3-4 sessions are for TA3 members and their guests.
Generating new jobs, new industries, and new competitive advantages in existing industries is high on the agenda of governments around the world. They recognize that creativity, innovation, and talent are integral to each and that success will require not only a more highly educated and skilled work force but that thinks differently, that is highly creative. This TA3 conference will focus on developing that creative and innovative labor force. More specifically, it will highlight ways that education and training institutions can nurture creativity among their students and within their institutions to produce a workforce with the talent to innovate, and how that creativity and innovation can be enhanced by collaborative networks and alliances involving colleges, companies, research and technology centres that complement one another and share knowledge and practices.
