IIT’s Laura Hosman and the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design’s Simona Maschi to present at IIT’s Conference on Innovation

Laura Hosman, of IIT’s Department of Social Science, and Simona Maschi from the Copenhagen Institute of Design, will present at a panel titled “Education for Innovation,” in the Hermann Hall Ballroom on IIT’s Main Campus at 4:45 pm on April 11, along with John Zumbrunnen of the University of Wisconsin and Jennifer Philips of Google.

The panel will take place on the second day of an interdisciplinary conference hosted by the Benjamin Franklin Project at IIT on April 10 – 11. The conference, “Infrastructures of Creativity: Institutions and Innovation in the 18th and 21st Centuries,” will consider today’s innovation landscape alongside that of the Atlantic Enlightenment, which was a period of remarkable innovation and creativity. Over the course of the two days, we will explore the types of institutional infrastructures and intellectual processes that foster or, alternatively, hinder innovation.

The entire IIT community–students, faculty, staff, and alumni–are invited to attend.
