"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.

Startup The Fusion is a two-day event created by a startup, for the startups, which aims to bring together the right mix of thinkers, doers and facilitators. Startup The Fusion is created in very close collaboration with the wunderkinds of Slush – the most important startup event in the Nordics.
Nordics will be the dominating theme throughout the event, which means nothing will be average or just “good enough”. Everything is designed to make sense and to be practical, in order to serve the startups and the ecosystem, as a whole. That’s because the entrepreneurs are our heroes. They are our football stars, and they deserve the attention and admiration of the society...

El fenómeno de la web 2.0, el desarrollo de la tecnología móvil y los smartphones, así como la mejora de las nuevas herramientas para el manejo de Internet han hecho que en los últimos años sean muchas las empresas que exporten a través de plataformas digitales. Tanto las pequeñas compañías que encuentran en las páginas web escaparates difíciles de lograr con una tienda física, como las grandes corporaciones que apuestan por la venta on-line como nueva línea de negocio, se han sumado a un modo de compra-venta que elimina fronteras pero que también presenta numerosas complejidades.
Casa de América, en colaboración con el IE Business School, se hace eco de este nuevo escenario y organiza el ciclo 'E-commerce: destino América' con el objetivo de desgranar el complejo pero prometedor futuro de la venta on-line.
Esta segunda sesión está dedicada al sector de los productos con denominación de origen, en el que se pueden analizar de manera relevante y significativa los alcances de estos nuevos formatos comerciales.

In Stockholm after last Saturday's Stockholm Start-Up Day I met up with Miki Kuusi, main organizer of Helsinki's Slush conference, to talk about the day's conference and the perceived differences between Stockholm and Helsinki's startup scene. Kuusi knows a thing or two about how Helsinki's scene has developed in recent years; during his tenure as president of Aalto Entrepreneurship Society, CEO at Startup Sauna, and a short time at Supercell, he's been one of the lead characters in the story that is today's Helsinki startup scene. And now, for the Arctic15 one month away, we're getting him up on stage in a different role, to give a talk about his experience in Helsinki and how startup scenes come together.

Welcome to the biennial Internet, Politics, and Policy (IPP) academic conference series. Our 2014 conference will explore the new research frontiers opened up by Crowdsourcing for Politics and Policy. It aims to serve as a forum to encourage discussion across disciplinary boundaries on how to exploit crowdsourcing to inform policy debates and advance social science research.
CALL FOR PAPERS: IPP2014 - Crowdsourcing for Politics and Policy (abstracts by: 14 March 2014)
Convened by the Oxford Internet Institute (University of Oxford) and OII-edited academic journal Policy and Internet, and supported by the ECPR Standing Group on Internet and Politics, the conference will take place at the University of Oxford on 25-26 September 2014.
We call for papers on the observed and potential implications of crowdsourcing for politics, policy and academic practice. Perspectives are welcomed from across science, social science and the humanities, from the academic and policy-making communities. We aim to identify what is novel in crowdsourcing, and the ways it enables and extends existing social and political processes...
