In the 2010 edition of iMinds, we want to reflect on the Internet as it has become one of the most critical infrastructures of the 21st century, and by supporting social and economic developments will enable a truly knowledge-based society. An ambitious and visionary solution is required to achieve targets in the long term. This can only be obtained if technological roadblocks are overcome through multidisciplinary and open innovation approaches. We therefore offer an interactive program combining inspirational speeches from Peter Hirshberg, Ben Verwaayen, Neelie Kroes and many others with thematical tracks and lots of high level networking.
To ensure maximum cross-fertilization, the iMinds conference is embedded in the Future Internet conference week, offering a program of back-to-back conferences, meetings and workshops related to the different topics of interest to the organizations involved and their stakeholders.
iMinds is open to anyone with an interest in the subject of ICT innovation and focuses on researchers, entrepreneurs from large and small companies, venture capitalists, civil servants, politicians and creative individuals with different disciplinary backgrounds.
