The USA's leading technology university, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), is once again holding its Europe Conference in Vienna. The motto for 2011 is "Innovation in a Networked World: Technology, People and Places".

Increasing deployment of sensors, hand-held electronics, interactive media and cutting edge advances in IT are fueling a new approach to innovation: Human-centered technology to foster connections between people, ideas, and physical places. This approach recognizes the major trends of how populations are concentrating in urban settings together with their increasing sensitivity to the environment and social issues.

Companies that reinvent themselves to capture new opportunities made possible by a Networked World are incorporating organizational and business-process changes, including broader sharing of information, decentralized decisionmaking, and making greater investments in training and education. This conference will focus on how a Networked World is changing innovation to make both companies and communities more human and more productive.

The conference will take place on 23.-24. March 2011 in Vienna.

Location: Austrian Federal Economic Chamber , Wiedner Hauptstr. 63, 1045 Vienna.
