From time to time I read an article that makes me marvel at the accomplishments of people working in the innovation field. Apparently, I’m not alone, since innovation is one of the most requested topics among subscribers to Soundview Executive Book Summaries. A visit to Summary.com reveals that Soundview has a variety of book summaries and book reviews (FREE book reviews, I might add) that examine the intricacies of the process of innovation.
Take a look at this news release from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI) Global Seed Funds. The fund awarded seed money to a series of ecology and bioengineering projects between MIT and China. The six projects that received the funding include efforts to map the antigenic evolution of influenza viruses, working with a solar thermo-electric generator for micro-power, among others.
