The ESADE Alumni France Chapter would like to invite you to the upcoming session titled ''Open Innovation'', to take place on Tuesday, November 15th at 7:30 pm.

Cecilia Tham, design, technology and open innovation strategist, and founder of Makers of Barcelona and FabCafe Barcelona, will be there to talk about Open Innovation.

From a change in corporate culture to a transformation in education, the maker movement has carried beyond the simple act of making.  It is the start of a paradigm shift in power, in attitude, and in capacity.  How can this change be incorporated and integrated in today's society?  What should we expect in the near future?  Most importantly, why you should care this discourse.
