The Altas of Ideas Final Conference
Wednesday, January 17, 2007 at 9:00 AM - Thursday, January 18, 2007 at 5:00 PM (PST)
Join us at The Atlas of Ideas conference on January 17th and 18th, 2007, where policymakers, business leaders, scientists and opinion formers from across Asia, Europe and the US will gather to debate the new geography of science.
The conference will mark the launch of a major report on the increasing importance of China, India and Korea in global networks of science and innovation, and the opportunities that these trends may create for new forms of research collaboration with Europe. The report is based on 18 months of fieldwork and over 400 interviews with policymakers, scientists and business leaders.

When & Where
Demos is one of the UK’s most influential think-tanks. Our research focuses on five areas: cities, culture, identity, public services and science. We analyse social and political change, which we connect to innovation and learning in organisations.
Our partners include policymakers, companies, public service providers and social entrepreneurs. Our international network – which extends across Europe, Scandinavia, Australia, Brazil, India and China – provides a global perspective and enables us to work across borders.
As an independent voice, we can create debates that lead to real change. We use the media, public events, workshops and publications to communicate our ideas. All our publications can be downloaded free from www.demos.co.uk
