Session Abstract

Drivers of Innovation in a Globally Connected World


Many of the innovations in the way we conduct our personal lives have come from university environments where high performance broadband networks were available, e.g., Google, Facebook. The Federal Government has recognized this value in the FCC's National Broadband Plan and in the broadband stimulus program.


A distinguished panel has been assembled to examine:

1) how expanded deployment of broadband capabilities can help drive innovation in education, business, and civic engagement

2) how access to globally interconnected researchers and research assets have changed the process and speed of innovation

3) how open source technologies and platforms have increased the process and speed of innovation

4) outside of broadband the key drivers of innovation
