We are approaching a turning point in human history. As mankind faces a wide range of issues from hunger to obesity, it is no longer feasible to solve problems using models of the 20th century based on finite quantities. Knowledge-based solutions are needed in order to build a sustainable society, and there must be innovators as well as innovation platforms to support them. My hope is that the Innovation Network for Co-Creating the Future will provide a key to successful creation of new economic and social value. I would like to invite you to join us in working to co-create the future.
