RIC Virtual Series: Session 1 – Beyond Silicon Valley with Gorka Espiau, David Li and Vicky Xie

We are honored to join the UNDP Regional Innovation Centre in its first virtual session “Beyond Silicon Valley with Gorka Espiau, David Li and Vicky Xie” and share about the bottom up open innovation ecosystem of Shenzhen. It’s also our great pleasure to share this session with Gorka Espiau Idoiaga whose work “Basque Transformational Narratives” has been a great inspiration to us.

“For the launch of the RIC Virtual Series, we wanted to explore alternative development and innovation models, especially for the Asian context. We hosted Gorka Espiau Idoiaga, Senior Fellow – Agirre Center for Social and Political Studies and David Li and Vicky Xie, of the Shenzhen Open Innovation Lab to offer a reflection on the experience in Basque and Shenzhen – one that explores very different models to “do” innovation, that builds on the strengths of the specific contexts.”
