Our 2018 ACtioN symposium will focus on Invention and Innovation. Although we are still working on this meeting's exact positioning, abstract, and speaker list, the content will draw heavily on SFI's Invention and Innovation research theme (details here). We suspect that insights from our March ACtioN meeting on the Complexity of the Patent System (details here) and our April ACtioN meeting on Platforms (details here) might also influence the aspects of Invention and Innovation highlighted at the Symposium.

An updated meeting description is forthcoming. In the interim, a recent issue of the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B provides some insights into the "SFI-Complexity View" of Invention and Innovation. This special Innovation-themed issue of the journal featured seven articles that were either authored or co-authored by SFI faculty or postdocs. An overview can be found here, and the issue itself can be found here.
