The G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance (G20 YEA) is a global network of young entrepreneurs and the organisations that support them. It was established to convene each year in advance of the G-20 Summit, with the aim of championing the importance of young entrepreneurs to the G20 member nations and to share examples and practices. The Alliance was officially created at the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Summit, Toronto, Canada, 2010.
G20 YEA Summit is being held each year since 2010. First meeting was held in Canada. France, Mexico, Russia, Australia Summits followed first one. Innovation and technology, investment and access to capital, education and coordinated support, government regulation and taxation, trade and globalization, entrepreneurship, culture and equality are the main topics of the summit.

ICTA research leader in artificial intelligence, Professor Toby Walsh, says Watson is well suited to solving problems that involve sifting through large volumes of unstructured data.
As the volume of data available to humans increases, he says tools like Watson will be essential for helping make sense of it all. An early application of Watson is in helping clinicians make better decisions.
“The number of scientific papers being written is beyond the remit of any one person to read any more, and often it is unstructured text,” Walsh says.
One of the first Australian organisations to sign up to Watson is Victoria’s Deakin University. Chief digital officer, William Confalonieri, says the university is using Watson initially to create an intelligent digital guide for students. Deakin has received the highest ranking of any Victorian university for learning satisfaction for the past four years, and Confalonieri says the use of Watson is intended to cement this...

Taking an unfashionable standpoint in the light of rising anti-European sentiment in Britain and some other countries, Kurt Deketelaere, secretary general of the League of European Research Universities, told a conference that EU-wide legislation may be required to enable the truly free movement of students and researchers.
Speaking at the Reinventing Higher Education conference at IE University in Madrid last week, Deketelaere warned that “we are not going to survive” if Europe continues with 28 separate sets of research systems and funding arrangements...
via Dyan Finkhousen, Head of Open Innovation at General Electric
"More recently, in an attempt to lessen the environmental impact of OS production and leverage the wisdom of the crowd, GE announced an innovation prize of C$1m to find technologies that will efficiently lower emissions"
"Another avenue being explored to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is carbon capture and storage, which OS production facilities are relatively well-suited for—though storage at scale is not yet economically viable. Two important commercial-scale test cases are in the works, however. The first is Shell’s Quest Project, which Shell believes will be able to sequester more than 1m tonnes of CO2 annually—equivalent to 35% of the CO2 produced by the facility. The second is the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line, which will connect multiple facilities and store an expected 1.8m tonnes of CO2 as part of an enhanced oil recovery operation. If successful, the latter could store up to 15m tonnes of CO2 a year—impressive, yet less than one-third of the industry’s annual emissions."

OUI Innov se celebrará el jueves 25 en el Colegio de Arquitectos de Madrid
Es lo que pretende OUI Innov, un evento impulsado por la Embajada de Francia en España para reunir a emprendedores españoles y franceses de base tecnológica en un espacio de intercambio de ideas, información y contactos que propicie el desarrollo de proyectos concretos.
En el encuentro, que se celebrará el jueves 25 de septiembre en la sede del Colegio Oficial de Arquitectos de Madrid,
Con ese objetivo, la Embajada, AFFI y la comunidad francesa de start-ups La French Tech han puesto en marcha OUI Innov, evento que promueve el emprendimiento e incentiva la innovación como motor de cambio y que reunirá el próximo jueves 25 a más de 400 inversores, emprendedores y expertos en innovación bajo el lema “Es hora de innovar”...
Los interesados en asistir al evento tienen plazo hasta el mismo jueves 25 para registrarse en la web de OUI Innov. La inscripción cuesta 30 euros y da acceso a todas las conferencias, sesiones de networking y actividades artísticas. El foro de inversores, en cambio, estará abierto solo a los 100 primeros en registrarse.
Filippi destacó que esta es la primera vez que el Gobierno francés organiza un encuentro de esta naturaleza en el exterior, si bien tiene previsto replicar la experiencia en otros países.
Los diplomáticos galos evitaron entrar en comparaciones sobre la política de innovación en España y Francia y se limitaron a comentar que “las estrategias son muy parecidas”. “Ambos países están enfocados en promover la internacionalización de sus empresas y tienen el mismo interés en cooperar y trabajar juntos”, zanjó Bouchet.
