IRealize
IRealize
Turin, Italy
9-10 June 2009

It’s still early days for this conference that presents itself as “two days aimed at identifying unsolved problems, suggesting possible (technological?) solutions and stimulating the creation of new disruptive start-ups”. The website needs some TLC and not much is yet announced.

A call for participation is currently open.

LIFT France 09

LIFT France 09
Marseille, France
18-19 June 2009

On June 18 and 19, entrepreneurs, researchers, artists, designers, and activists will be at LIFT France to express their vision of a “hands-on future”, a future of do-it-yourself change:

  • Changing Things: Towards objects that are not just “smart” and connected, but also customizable, hackable, transformable, fully recyclable… Towards decentralized and multipurpose manufacturing, or even home fabrication…
  • Changing Innovation: Towards continuous and networked innovation, emerging from users as well as entrepreneurs, from researchers as well as activists…
  • Changing the Planet: Towards a “green design” that reconnects global environmental challenges with growth, but also with human desire, pleasure, beauty and fun…

Confirmed speakers are (for now) Usman Haque, Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, Philippe Lemoine, Euan Semple, John Thackara, Edith Akerman, Dennis Pamlin, and Jean-Michel Cornu.
