The mind sciences in society for innovation project (MSISFI) is happy to welcome you all to the Mind, Meditation and Innovation conference to be held in Copenhagen, at the Copenhagen Business School. The purpose of the conference is to explore the link between mind as conceived by a diversity of academics and practising professionals; how it can benefit from meditative and contemplative techniques and how these techniques can play a positive role in our understanding of innovation and creativity from an individual point of view. We will also address how this self-learning perspective impacts innovation and what are its implications for small, medium and large organisations.
The Mind, Meditation and Innovation conference is organised among three days. The first day is dedicated to our understanding of the mind from all perspectives, all philosophies to the extent possible, this day will be divided into two parts, the morning session which will be dedicated to the academics and the afternoon session to practicing professionals, who work within the field of mind, meditation and innovation. The second day will be dedicated to issues related to meditation, its implication on- or understanding of the mind and how it is proposed to affect the mind. The third day is dedicated to creativity and innovation, where the focus is on understanding the implications of the mind as we conceptualize it, the way we experience meditation and the way it affects us, how does mind influence creativity and innovation. The 3rd day is about linking our understanding of the mind, our practice of meditation and contemplation and its implication on our ability to be creative and take part in innovation creatively.
