The 2011 All-Island Innovation Conference, entitled Building Capability for Innovation, is taking place at Queen’s University Belfast on Tuesday 4 October and Wednesday 5 October.

The conference will explore how innovation can stimulate economic recovery, and what the best methods are for implementing such changes.

Professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter, The Ernest L. Arbuckle Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School, will give a keynote address each day:

  • Innovation: Classic Traps and the Enduring Success Factors
  • Creating a Supportive Environment for Innovation to Flourish

There is no charge to attend this conference.

In the packed two-day programme, a number of business leaders, from both sides of the border, will  explore how innovation can be developed within any business and outline the benefits it has brought to their own businesses. Delegates will also hear the results of cutting-edge research into innovation that is taking place in our universities.
The conference will be of interest to business owners and senior managers in all industry sectors and business sizes, senior managers in the public and Third sector and anyone with a responsibility for the strategic development of a business or organisation.
The second day of the conference will be of specific interest to academic researchers with an interest in innovation and management.
