Invitation for Proposals, SoL's 1st Global Forum,

June 11-14, 2003, Espoo, Finland

Proposal Deadline: December 14, 2002.

The first Global Forum of SoL, the Society for Organizational Learning, will be held June 11-14, 2003 in the Helsinki metropolitan area in Espoo, Finland. The Global Forum will bring together about 350 practitioners, researchers, consultants, students and others interested in organizational learning from around the world. Sessions by practitioners and world leaders in the field will cover a wide variety of topics.

The theme of this first SoL Global Forum is "Learning in Organizations: Inventing Desired Futures in a Global Society". Learning from the future rather than learning only from the past is a key competence for all of us, whether we practice in business, government, or civil society. And while we can increase our knowledge by becoming more aware of what we are accomplishing separately, many of our desired futures will only be achieved together. The Global Forum is an opportunity for exchange, reflection, and working together on topics of personal and global concern.

The Global Forum is designed to be a community meeting for all SoL members and people interested in organizational learning providing an opportunity to:

  • Deepen our understanding of how we collectively create the futures we desire through exposure to leading edge thinking and a rich diversity of examples from around the world;
  • Improve organizational performance by sharing and reflecting on projects underway; integrating the perspectives of practitioners, researchers and consultants;
  • Strengthen and expand our networks of relationships, creating new opportunities for cooperation and joint action; and
  • Continue to develop the SoL global network as an active learning community.

You are invited to submit proposals for:

  • Workshops or other Parallel Sessions to be offered on June 12th -June 14th
  • Pre-meeting Capacity Building Sessions to be offered on June 10th and 11th

The deadline for submission of proposals is December 14, 2002. For more information, contact Satu Vainio of SoL Finland.

Dear colleagues,

The FPTT Conference is fast approaching! The detailed program, with
something for everyone - managers, researchers, policy analysts and
technology transfer professionals - from all sectors, and is available on our website at http://www.fptt-pftt.gc.ca/2003Conference/English/2003confintro.html.

Many of you are aware of the federal government's Innovation

day of the conference , is a panel of three CEOs, on "Collaborative
R&D as a Tech Transfer Tool: Perspective from Canada's 'Fourth
Pillar' Organizations, and will touch on the subject of receptor
capacity.

I would also like to highlight the panel of experts from government
and industry who will be addressing R&D collaborations from both a
public and private sector perspective and another panel of experts
who will be responding to the results of a recently published
Statistics Canada survey of over 6000 firms on the subject of "
Innovation, Collaboration and SMEs".

And if you need information on the challenges and trends in
multi-partner collaborations, how to find partners for successful
collaboration and technology transfer ,what to consider when
negotiating and putting together collaborative agreements or issues
to consider before entering into a foreign R&D partnership, join us
as we explore multi-partner collaborations and find out how they are
shaping the future of R&D and providing creative approaches to
technology transfer.

Thanks to the generosity of one of our sponsors, Future Path Inc., we
are delighted to announce we have a Herman Miller Aeron chair from
OBI (Ottawa Business Interiors) , the ultimate in ergonomic comfort,
bundled with Future Path 's Revalyst software to give away to one

Ottawa Creative Thinking Group

April 22; May 13

Dear members and friends,

The World Health Organization states that: "This is the time of the most rapid technological change in health care in history". Rapid technological innovations produce more than 1000 new drugs and over 20,000 new medical devices every year recently.

During the next two sessions at the Ottawa Creative Thinking Group, we shall discuss the safety and effectiveness issues of healthcare products in general and medical devices in particularly with special reference to government regulations.

On 22 April (7-9pm, 250 Holland Ave), we shall have at least two experts to lead us into an interesting and insightful discussion: our special guest Dr Pierre Blais, Ph.D., an experts on medical device implants who is frequently interviewed by radio and TV broadcasters, and our founding member Dr Bill Riedel Ph.D., an expert microbiologist and a social advocate whose articles frequently appear on newspapers. This session will focus on what the Canadians citizen and the Canadian Government could do to really benefit from such rapid innovations.

On 13 May 7-9pm, Michael Cheng who has been working as a Temporary Advisor to the World Health Organization will give a preview of a theme paper that he will deliver to the World Bank Internal Forum for Promoting Safe and Affordable Medical Technology in Developing Countries. Discussions can then be extended to global issues. More than ¾ of the world's population live in developing countries, and they must be included in any true global health considerations.

Please mark these two sessions on your calendar. Attendance and participation is free. Please contact Michael at email cheng@sympatico.ca or phone (613) 722-3344 if you wish to attend.

Club of Amsterdam Conference about
the future of Mobility

Date: Wednesday, March 26, 18:30-22:15.
For information about the VIP Reception (17:30-19:00), please visit the TicketCorner.
Where: Auditorium, Hogeschool van Amsterdam, Weesperzijde 190, Amsterdam [next to Amstelstation]
Ticket information: http://www.clubofamsterdam.com/ticketcorner.html



Part I: Keynotes by:
André Hammer
, General Director, Connekt
and
Wim Korver
, head of the Department of Traffic & Transport and member of the management team of the institute TNO Inro (Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development) of Applied Scientific Research TNO in Delft.

André Hammer, General Director, Connekt: "Modern society is facing major problems with its mobility and accessibility. Especially in large urban areas these are growing dramatically. People want to be more mobile, in itself vital to modern economy. However, our living environment needs to be protected as well. This dilemma forces us to make fundamental, intelligent choices. Especially with regard to big cities, because how do we maintain its vital economic and cultural functions and will we manage to keep it an attractive living environment at the same time?
This issue is no longer either an exclusive public or private responsibility. A strcutural solution – a transition to sustainable mobility - has to be found through far-reaching cooperation between public and private parties, together with the help of research institutes. Last but not least, let us not forget about the citizens of urban areas, the mobilists themselves.
In short notice we can already start with an innovative series of mobility market services that will influence the intensity of the traffic and the use of the infrastructure."


New innovative transport concepts: from technology push towards demand driven
Wim Korver, TNO Inro: "It is not difficult to list a number of inventions of new transport concepts claiming to solve the existing and coming transport problems. Examples are: the Transrapid, all kind of people mover systems, underground transport systems, etc. All these ideas have one thing in common: they are based on a specific technological innovation. But what the contribution is on solving a specific transport problem is unclear. The analysis who will be going to pay for the new system and what actual the users benefits are, is mostly done afterwards. To make the innovation process more effective we need to incorporate the user as soon as possible in the innovation process."
In his presentation Wim Korver will give examples of successful and unsuccessful transport innovations. Also a more theoretical background will be presented of how innovations processes in the transport system work. This is based on a historical analysis, and enriched with possible developments (scenarios) for the future. Finally he will show some promising first steps of new ways of stimulating innovation within the transport system.

Part II: Panel with the Keynote Speakers and the challengers
Frederik Johannes Abbink
, Technical Director of the National Aerospace Laboratory NLR,
Ronald K.A. M. Mallant
, Programme Manager Fuel Cells, Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN),
Luud Schimmelpennink
, industrial designer, managing director, Ytech Innovation Centre
and our Host J.P.Thomas Thijssen, CEO, Hamilton International.
The panel is followed by an open discussion.
