Venue: UQ Business School Executive Venue, Level 19, 345 Queen Street, Brisbane 4000

Emeritus Professor Deborah Dougherty - Rutgers University

Event Overview:
Developing new drugs for unmet medical needs such as Alzheimer’s, cancers, or PTSD requires innovating across a complex eco-system, where knowledge for innovation emerges unpredictably. Innovators must take advantage of emergence by grabbing up fragmented, dispersed, and noisy information. But how can so many scientists, managers, public officials, and entrepreneurs take advantage of emerging knowledge for innovation? This talk details how.
