Event: Creativity Conference

On October 23 and 24, Radboud University organises a Creativity Conference. We warmly invite you to attend our conference in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Leading researchers from over Europe, the United States and Australia, such as Prof. Mark Runco, Prof. Roni Reiter-Palmon and Dr. David Croply, are present to talk about their research findings and recent insights in the domain of creativity and innovation.

Moreover, we will reflect on where the creativity and innovation research field stands, the measurements we use, and where we are heading to with our research in the future. We also aim to set first steps in developing an international network of creativity and innovation researchers.

The two-day conference is open to academics working or interested in the field of creativity and innovation, but also to policy makers, business leaders and practitioners. Together with the latest group, we also aim to improve and accelerate the societal impact of our research findings.
