Abstract: On the topic of global competitiveness, we hear a great deal of rhetoric reflecting a zero-sum view of the world. If one country is improving its economic performance, it is perceived to be at the cost of another. The reality of the situation is that the world’s innovation hubs are becoming increasingly interdependent. Looking at Silicon Valley as an example, how are global linkages of collaboration growing and how are they changing over time? And what are possible implications for the much needed global energy transformation away from fossil fuels?
Light refreshments will be served.
