Open innovation is cross-cultural, cross-geographical and a cross-industry collaboration that impacts all levels of society and business. At Mind the Bridge we like to think that when it comes […]

What will happen @ European Innovation Day, Sept 20th, Mountain View (CA)

We are all set for our annual gathering of the European Innovation Day conference.
